Youth Summer Jobs

Though it is only March, youth need to start planning their summer job goals.  Summer jobs provide experience, communications development, wages, engagement and training to youth.  Where does one start in the job search?

Ontario residents have the opportunity to start their own business with the help of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and University.  The Summer Company program provides: “…hands-on business coaching, mentoring from local community business leaders and awards of up to $3,000.”

Other youth summer programs run by the Ministry include: Rangers working in natural resource management, summer law student (for 1st and 2nd year students), Aboriginal Youth Work Exchange and a disadvantaged youth summer work program.  (Click on any of the links to learn more about programs).

The Youth Canada website has some good resources for youth about knowing their rights in the workplace.  They also provide resources on legal issues related to starting your own business.

A summer job is not only an introduction into the workforce for youth it is also a way to make a meaningful contribution to the community.

Stay tuned for some valuable ideas on how youth can engage in community development this summer.
