Career Services

Youth Opportunities Unlimited specializes in supporting young people in their job search. We meet youth where they are at in their work-related journey, and provide support and opportunities so that all young people can reach their potential. 

If you are between the ages of 15-30 and are not enrolled in education or employment full time, we can help you job search! To get started with Career Services, please contact an Employment Counsellor today. Appointments can be booked by completing the Contact Form at the bottom of this page, calling us at 519-432-1112 to book an appointment, or stopping by for a drop-in appointment. Drop-ins are available at 333 Richmond St between 9am-12pm and 1pm-5pm Monday through Friday. Don't forget to bring your SIN number with you!

Employment

The first step in getting started is meeting with an Employment Counsellor, who can help to assess eligibility and interest in YOU programming. Our Employment Counsellors offer individualized supports with resume building, interview preparation, and job searching.

Education

YOU offers multiple educational opportunities for young people. This includes training in Smart Serve, Safe Food Handling, First Aid/CPR and providing referrals for additional training. Employment Counsellors can also support youth with educational goals related to high school, college and university.

For assistance with education and employment, contact Ingrid Pena, Career Services at IngridP@you.ca or 519-432-1112.
 

"What YOU means to me is the ability to take someone who may be struggling with personal issues or someone who's looking for work, maybe both, and turn their life around in a small amount of time. Personally, I have made a friend and found work, all in one month! Now I work at Coca-Cola and I'm excited to see what achievements my life can bring me moving forward. Thank you YOU!" - Paul
