Youth Corner
Youth Job Connection Program 
Chadia Lewis is a client of the Youth Job Connection Program. This program, held at the Brampton South location (7700 Hurontario Street), where youth between the ages of 15-29 years of age complete a series of workshops for 60 hours total and then be put in a placement in a workplace with the intention to be hired permanently at these places. While working at the placement, clients also receive supports from the program such as transportation, uniforms and any training that would require extra payment. Chadia wrote a short synopsis of her experience in the program:

"Before I joined the YJC program I was working part time. After realizing that I wasn't going anywhere with this job, I started looking for something else but soon realized that I was having a lot of barriers that were keeping me from securing employment. Then someone referred me to the YJC program. During the workshops I learned a lot about the job market. I learned new techniques on how to not only look for a job but to keep it as well.  The facilitators were very knowledgeable and during those three weeks they made me feel very comfortable. Thanks to the YJC program I have been able to find a permanent position and I'm able to move forward with my life whose services include bookkeeping, personal and corporate tax and financial advice. The environment is always warm and friendly with the customers always leaving with a smile. When I first started I knew nothing about taxes or T4s with limited skills on excel. But with patience and time I have learned so many things about not only the finance industry but also about myself as well. I've developed a tougher skin and to really learn how to take constructive criticism. Now I'm leaving with a stronger sense of who I am and new set of skills all thanks to all the placement."
