Youth Are Working


Youth Are Working gives youth ages 18-29 the opportunity to take part in four weeks of training, followed by a minimum of 20 weeks of employment.

The participants in this program are ready and able to work, but may have limited job experience or are looking for an opportunity for gainful employment.

For Employers, we offer a Service Canada Youth Grant worth 50% of the wage of the employee’s worked hours. The grant is based off the current provincial minimum wage rate ($15.60 as of April 1st, 2024).

The participants undergo four weeks of training prior to beginning their work experience, and get training that could include:

Emergency First Aid with CPR Level C
Respectful Workplace Training
Resume Building
WHMIS Certificate
Job Interview Training
Job Search Strategies
Occupational Health & Safety Committee Level 1 Certificate
Financial Management
Team building
Service Best Customer Service Training from Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador
And much more







Youth Are Working is always looking for new training opportunities and we are happy to provide our youth with any training they will benefit from in the workplace.
