The program is open to all eligible youth. However, the intention is to help youth who have a lower likelihood of finding a summer job by themselves, with a focus on those who are at risk of experiencing poor transitions between education and work, compared to other groups of youth (e.g., youth who have made successful transitions to post-secondary education are not the target of this program).
To apply to the Youth Job Connection program, please e-mail YJC@lambtoncollege.ca. More information about this program is also available on the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities website.
This Employment Ontario program is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
