helping youth reach their goals
Beginning April 1, 2019, ACCESS Youth Outreach is excited to add an employment program to serve the youth of the Tri-cities! This innovative program partners with Work BC and other non-profits in the Tri-Cities catchment to provide youth up to 24 years old with job skills training, interviewing skills, resume building and finally access to the employment market.
This program is far more than just helping our youth find a job; we’ve also partnered with “employee friendly” businesses that understand the barriers some youth face today in finding and sustaining meaningful employment.
