CAVE Youth Employment Program





Are you 15-29 and looking for your fit in the workplace?

Join the CAVE and get real tools and training to find and keep a steady job that you like. CAVE is a place for youth to identify job goals, explore careers, build workplace skills and confidence and connect with employers.

During your 16 weeks at CAVE you will create a plan to get where you want to go in the labour market. Participants receive a Douglas College Certificate plus industry training certificates upon completion. Transportation supports provided.

Phase 1. 4 weeks of in-class training focused on enhancing essential workplace skills and job search skills to achieve employment goals. Includes resume preparation, cover letter writing, interviewing skills, and industry-specific training.

Phase 2. Up to 12 weeks of job search support including customized assistance from experienced program staff who will help you connect with and refer you to employers.
