Rise Up Youth Employment

We provide employment services to youth aged 15 to 25 who are facing barriers to employment. No experience? Lacking community connection? Work related anxiety? Apply Now!

Rise UP Youth Employment provides services to youth aged 15 - 25 who face barriers to employment. The program was launched in 2015 after seeing a need for supportive employment for marginalized youth.

Rise UP provides one-to-one outreach support to help youth meet their employment goals. Employment Counsellors help with such things as resume building, interview skills, and on-the-job coaching, and work with most youth for between 4 - 6 months.

Thanks to the generosity of funders, Rise UP can offer this program at no cost to participants.
