Completing the Circle Program
Pre-Employment Training & Jobs for Youth Aged 15-30
We are thrilled to deliver an employment placement program for youth ages 15 to 30 called Completing the Circle (CTC).
The CTC program is an employment and skills development project funded by Canada’s Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS). It provides individual support to youth with multiple barriers to employment.
Through the Completing the Circle (CTC) program, youth aged 15 to 30 across Ontario receive support to find employment.
Depending on your experience and needs, you can access training for up to five weeks, so they get the confidence, skills, and tools to start and maintain a career.
We offer work opportunities, employment maintenance, career advancement, professional development, training, and support targeted to each program participant.
- One-on-one support that meets your individual needs
- Paid virtual/in-person workshops for up to five weeks
- No-cost certifications (Customer Service Excellence/AODA, First Aid/CPR, WHMIS)
- Work-related clothing, equipment, and other necessary supports to start and maintain employment
- Paid, full-time work placement, leading to permanent employment
- Employment placement completion bonus
