All YOU programs and matching services are free to employers. We have year-round and summer seasonal programs that enable us to offer you, the employer, financial incentives to hire and train youth. Job Developers are ready to assist you with all areas of new employee recruitment and retention.


         Hiring Incentives

Do you have a position available your organization needs filled? Would you like to you create one with our assistance? Youth Opportunities Unlimited programs can make it happen. We make it easy! A wage subsidy is offered as an incentive for employers but also as an investment by both the employer and Youth Opportunities Unlimited. This subsidy varies in length of time depending on the hours that can be offered. Also, the amount is based on experience and potential barriers to employment. We can also post job opportunities for youth on our website at no cost to you. YOU has various programs that offer wage subsidies so payment method and time may vary but you can contact one of our Business Liaisons to get more information.

Jobs for Youth (JFY)

Youth receive pre-employment training and support, paid employment placements from July to August, and post-employment support. As an employer, you benefit through a fully subsidized summer employment program, while helping young people in our community gain valuable work experience. Youth can work at your company/organization at no cost to you for up to 6 weeks in July and August.
