City of Brantford, in partnership with the Brant Skills Centre, is offering a free Youth Employment Series for youth, ages 12 to 18.
This series takes place on February 6, 13 and 27, 2023 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Woodman Park Community Centre. This three-part series will help youth to identify transferable skills, develop a resume and practice interviewing skills. This series will also help interested youth to successfully search and apply for jobs.
“We are pleased to partner with The City of Brantford to share valuable skills and information with youth so they can access local economic opportunities,” said Elisha Stuart, Program Coordinator for Brant Skills Centre. “This series offers interactive learning activities to support youth to develop employment readiness skills and the confidence they need to succeed.”
Registrants are asked to participate in all three sessions to get the most out of the program. Participants who attend the full series will receive a Certificate of Recognition. Each class takes place on Mondays February 6, 13 and 27, 2023. at Woodman Park Community Centre, 491 Grey Street in Brantford. Refreshments will be provided.

Collaborating with employment service providing partners to address barriers to youth employment training skills is a key component of the City of Brantford’s Empowering Youth Strategy, which was approved by Council in January 2022. These activities will provide an opportunity for youth to develop new skills and enhance existing skills that will help them succeed in the entry-level labour market and beyond.
