The Career Ignition Program is a new program designed to assist youth job seekers, in grades 9 to 12, to gain the skills and knowledge that is required to be successful in their journey of career planning and employment, both now and in the future. It has been designed specifically to build the confidence and skills of our local youth to better prepare them to successfully navigate the job search and career planning process.
The Program workshops are designed to build on one another, with the goal of preparing participants for a Job Fair for local employers and youth job seekers to be held on March 2nd, 2019 at the Wasaga Beach RecPlex. Our intent is that the Career Ignition Program will be recognized as the youth job readiness program of choice by local employers and businesses when hiring youth.
The Career Ignition 2019 program is a partnership between Town of Wasaga Beach, Career Solutions and local community members, who make up the Career Ignition planning team.
