Jobs for Youth program still accepting applications for students, employers

MANITOULIN—Applications are still being accepted for the Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board (DSB) Jobs for Youth program , for both students seeking work and potential employers.

The Jobs for Youth program pairs youths aged 15 to 18 with employers in their area, paying their full wage (adult minimum wage) for six weeks or 210 hours. Last year, 28 students received summer employment on Manitoulin thanks to the program, which also provides one week of employee training as well as first aid certification. Students will also have the support of a youth worker leader throughout the placement.

Applications for both students and employers are due this Friday, June 5 and are available online at or by dropping into the Little Current office located at the Manitoulin Business Centre in Little Current, 9050 Highway 6, Unit D.
