For Employers

.Our employees are saying that...they want to see action in the communities where we live and work.... So being able to help in organizations that they've heard of or they drive by every day...or that they could recommend to someone they know... that's where we're really trying to get the impact...

Give youth a chance. They’re good for business and vital to our future.

Why should you consider previously homeless or at-risk youth for entry-level employment opportunities or apprenticeships? Because it’s a wise investment in the workforce, your business and the health of your local community.

Across Canada, local community agency hiring programs can help you find motivated, qualified youth AND save you time and money in the recruitment process. 

We hope the information, examples and insights in this section will encourage you to give unemployed youth a chance.
