COVID-19: The Impact on Youth Education and Employment

Youth Employment and COVID-19 – Be part of new programming ideas!

What this outreach is all about
The Workforce Planning Board of Waterloo Wellington Dufferin and its partners want to help Youth, 15-29 years old, affected by COVID-19 to continue on with their educational and career pathways. We are holding conversational, virtual sessions to hear from youth about their employment, job seeking and learning experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using that information, the partner team will develop employment programming to assist youth during the COVID-19 pandemic and in the new workplaces post-pandemic.

The Sessions
We are hosting multiple sessions for different youth demographics in October: those still in high school, post-secondary students, youth who are in the workforce (actively working, job seeking, unemployed, working with Employment Ontario provider). Participants will receive incentives including community volunteer hours and gift cards.

Pick the session that works best for you. You will be re-directed to Eventbrite to complete your registration. Sessions are hosted through Zoom platform. You will need access to computer and internet, but please connect with us if this is an issue so we can find an alternative solution for you.

If you run a class, youth employment session or other youth activity and would like us to connect with your group directly, please contact Olga Denisova at to set up a specific session for your group.
