For the past 47 years Youth Employment Services YES has been helping Toronto’s disadvantaged and marginalized youth find and maintain employment. Our programs and services help youth develop new skills, gain confidence and motivation, identify and pursue their goals, and overcome the challenges that are preventing them from finding and maintaining work and ultimately fulfilling their potential. Of the youth we supported in 2014 through our employment programs, 90% of them achieved a successful outcome (found a job, started their own business, returned to school, or pursued further training).
Since 1978, Working Skills Centre (WSC) has been providing a holistic program to help individuals overcome barriers to employment and move towards economic self-sufficiency. While mandated to serve a broader clientele throughout the greater Toronto area (GTA), our mission statement reflects the emphasis on programs for immigrant women geared towards improving their skills, self-esteem and employment prospects.
