If you’re a young person looking for work, you might want to consider signing up for a program that pays you to train for a bunch of different jobs.
Burnaby Neighbourhood House is offering a 20-week youth employment program for people aged 15 to 30.
Participants will get training in first aid, FoodSafe, Serving it Right (for alcohol service), Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System and Super Host, as well as communication, financial literacy, critical thinking and other skills.
The program also teaches participants how to find a job, including writing a resumé and cover letter and interviewing.
The training is then followed by 12 weeks of paid work experience with an employer.
Participants are paid minimum wage ($13.85 per hour) for the full 20 weeks, followed by a bonus upon completion.
