The Youth Employment Success Strategy (CAIWA YESS) project provides participants with ten (10) weeks of comprehensive employability skills and traits that are essential in accessing employment in the Canadian workplace. This will be followed by 12 weeks of work placement, which provides the opportunity to gain actual work experience with local employers, and has the potential to lead to permanent employment.


These skills and work experiences will help recent youth immigrants, visible minority youth immigrants, and low-income youth immigrants make a successful transition to full-time employment or return to school to allow them to acquire advanced professional skills.
