In partnership with key NGOs, the Youth Employment Program (“the YEP”) is a 12-month federal work experience program that seeks to increase employability, confidence and success of youth furthest away from opportunity in both the National Capital Region (Ottawa/Gatineau) and the Greater Toronto Region.
The YEP participants will gain valuable experience and skills, be exposed to a variety of files and opportunities, and, more generally, learn how the government works. Whether a senior executive or an administrative assistant, all employees within the Government of Canada can take pride in being a public servant.
What’s more, we believe a key ingredient to success is ensuring that there are proper supports. This work experience program will include a robust onboarding package, on-going learning and development opportunities (in-class and online modules), as well as encourage mentorship, community and peer support.
All those interested in participating MUST also register with ONE of the following organizations:
