The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Coast BC connects young people with the support, training and services they need to gain a competitive edge in their industry and increase their chances of landing a good job locally.

But the best part is, participants actually get paid an hourly wage while attending four weeks of workshops and training, followed by a fully subsidized six week work experience placement with a local employer.

The virtual workshops during the program touch on everything from interview skills to resume and cover letter preparation to make young people stand out from other applicants.

Short-term certificate training will help participants get noticed by employers as well.

The organization is also offering ongoing one-on-one support as well as a $750 completion bonus for those who finish the program.

Who’s Eligible

The one-of-a-kind Youth Works employment program is available for those aged 15 to 30 living in the lower mainland. Participants must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or have refugee status.

And they should be eager to learn new skills, acquire work experience and be ready to land a job. They also have to be in need of support and assistance to develop employment readiness and overcome any barriers to employment.

How To Register

The next intake of youth is taking place from Jan. 24, 2022 to March 31, 2022. Spots are limited, so you must register in advance to secure a seat. The workshops are held between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

You can register online by visiting youthworks@bgcbc.ca or contact (604) 591-9262 ext. 117.

The Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC program is a great opportunity for young people to find a job close to them to further hone their skills and build the foundation they need for a successful career no matter what their background is.
