This summer local area young people can get a job through the new Youth Opportunities
Summer Employment Program in York Region.
The Youth in Policing program is part of the government’s, Youth Opportunities Strategy that helps provide young people with opportunities to develop valuable work skills with local employers and police services.
Locally, the York Regional Police Service has recruited 6 youth, ages 14 to 17, interested in a
policing career. Participants are given one week of training, a six to seven-week paid job
placement, and preparation for future employment or education and training. They will have the opportunity to work in a variety of areas, including information technology, forensic identification, community events and traffic safety.
More than $22, 800 is being spent on this job program in York Region this year.
“This summer, young Ontarians will have an opportunity to acquire critical work and life skills through the Youth Opportunities Summer Employment Program. Through this program, these youth will gain valuable work experience, meet employers and mentors, and build their resumes. For many, this will be more than just a summer job – it will be a first step towards reaching their full potential.”
-Laurel Broten, Minister of Children and Youth Services.
“York region youth will benefit greatly from this summer employment program. This program will help in better equiping our kids for future employment opportunities.
