You too can be part of the YEP experience!

The Youth…

“Through the Youth Employment Program (YEP), I was able to successfully find a job in the construction trades that I am enjoying and that offers me opportunities to further my career goals. I would recommend the Youth Employment Program for any person who is in search of new beginnings.”

Chathura Kariyawasam
Pyramid Prefab Piping Ltd.

Jim Watt, (R) production manager for Pyramid Prefab Pipe, is happy to have Chathura on board and help him out during his three weeks work experience

“The program is really helpful for people with no experience. When I looked on my own, companies seemed to be looking only for 1st year apprentices and people with experience. Since I had no experience before YEP I was finding it hard to find a job. I was grateful that the Youth Employment Program gave me a chance to start my career in cabinetmaking and get my foot on the door.”

The Employers...

“The Youth Employment Program brings youth and experience together in no small way. YEP encourages youth to pursue a career in our industry. I would recommend everyone to take advantage of YEP and provide work experience for young people. It is working for Concept!”

“YEP has been an invaluable resource for us. The pre-screening saves us time and ensures we are meeting with suitable candidates for apprentice positions. We look forward to continuing our relationship with YEP as an essential part of our recruiting strategy”
