Is your organization in need of new talent? The YMCA's Post-Secondary Youth Internship Program is looking to connect 52 recent post-secondary graduates to new careers by January 21st, 2019!

Finding employment or the right employee in today’s economy can be tough. That’s why each year the YMCA helps over 170,000 youth and young adults reach their full potential through employment programs like the YMCA Post-Secondary Youth Internship Program (PSYIP) – a federally funded initiative providing recent graduates with career-related work experiences in various sectors. PSYIP helps young, motivated professionals build skills, develop confidence and integrate into the Canadian labour market.

The YMCA’s Post-Secondary Youth Internship Program is looking to connect 52 recent post-secondary graduates to new careers by January 21st, 2019! Each new hire comes with an $8.00/hour wage subsidy for the first 8-16 weeks to offset training costs for their new employer.
