The Youth Employment Centre’s Scholarship Program offers youth an opportunity to win $1000 towards their educational, training, or upgrading goals. To be eligible, youth must be working on or have completed career planning or job search activities with an Employment Counsellor at the Youth Employment Centre.

YEC awarded three $1000 scholarships last year. "The YEC scholarship has really helped out with easing up on my financial stress so that I can focus on my academics during my first year in university," states 2011 scholarship recipient Carlie Yeung.

It’s not too late to qualify! Simply visit an Employment Counsellor at the Youth Employment Centre (located on the second floor of 315 – 10th Ave. S.E.) to get started. The Youth Employment Centre is open Monday – Friday 8 – 5 p.m. year round. All services offered at YEC are available at no cost to youth ages 15-24. For more information on the Youth Employment Centre, visit nextsteps.org. For more information on program criteria and to download an application form, visit our current events page.

Application deadline is June 30, 2012.
