Inspire Youth Training & Employment
Inspire is a 16-week training program for youth aged 15 – 30.
We help you move toward your career goals and blast barriers (whatever they may be) in the way of your perfect job.
Here’s how it works:
1. Three weeks of in-class learning and exploration. Online workshops include:
- managing stress at work
- workplace communication skills
- know your rights at work
2. Explore your own learning goals, interest and career options. You might:
- strengthen your computer skills
- build up workplace certifications
- explore your field of interest
- meet with experts working in your field of interest
3. 13 weeks of work placement:
- gain work experience and develop new skills on the job
- earn while you learn and work
We work with students to overcome barriers to employment – anything from dealing with social anxiety, to living outside of town with no car. We can offer a range of supports, such as:
- help with transportation
- housing assistance
- community referrals
Our employment partners are local businesses with a strong commitment to mentoring and skills development. We work hard to match all participants with a job in their field of interest.

I was amazed how quickly the Inspire program found me a placement in this field. They work really hard to find a great fit.”
