Title
Workforce of Tomorrow Youth Skills Link Project
Abstract
The Coasters Association implemented a fourth phase of the Youth Skills Link Project which began on May 18th, 2015, and ran until November 13th, 2015, funded by Service Canada. The YSLP entitled: “Workforce of Tomorrow” was designed to help out eight (8) youth between the ages of 15-30 throughout the Lower North Shore, to overcome employment barriers by enabling them to develop/improve on self-knowledge, employability skills, skills enhancement, through three weeks of Group Based Employability Skills training, and seventeen (17) weeks of work experience. The project was posted throughout the coast inviting youth to take part in the project based out of their respective communities/municipalities. A total of seven (7) applicants were received, interviews were carried out with each applicant and job placement was necessary before final selection. The selected youth derived from the Municipalities of C te Nord du Golfe du Saint Laurent, Gros Mecatina, Bonne Esperance, and Blanc Sablon were hired for twenty (20) weeks of training and work experience.
