If you are participating in Youth Outreach you may be eligible to earn money while learning a skill and gaining job experience through a Youth Outreach apprenticeship.
An apprenticeship is a way you can get job training and experience that will help you find a job later on. You work at a business with a mentor, your supervisor, who teaches you all the skills needed to work at your job. Through our Supported Employment Services, our Job Coach will talk to you about the kind of work you would like to do and will find a business that matches your interest area. You are paid by The Learning Web for the work you do as an apprentice.
Sometimes your mentor will have a regular job opening and like your work so much that you are hired after your apprenticeship. This is totally up to your mentor and is not guaranteed. Mentors can be a great reference when you are applying for other jobs.
If you are interested in an apprenticeship, please contact your Youth Outreach Case Manager to find out if you are eligible.
