Challenges in finding a job can derail young lives before they even get started. Through employment education and on-the-job training, Ray of Hope helps young people enter the workplace with the skills they need to succeed.
The Youth Employment Program teaches practical skills and positive work habits to young people who have had difficulty maintaining full-time employment. Participants stay connected with the program for one year after graduating so they can continue to receive support and maintain the relationships they’ve built. In this three-phase program, participants complete:
- Classroom training that prepares them for their job placements.
- A work term at one of our Morning Glory Café and Catering locations.
- A paid placement with an external employer.
