Orangeville, Ontario – The Orangeville Service Canada Centre for Youth (SCCY) is now open to the public. The office is ready to assist businesses and young workers with their summer employment needs.
“Whatever the job – big or small, short or long term – we can help you fill it,” said Adriana Koolman, Youth Services Officer. “In the coming weeks, Youth Services Officers will be contacting local employers to make them aware that our SCCY is now open and ready to assist them in any way it can.”
Service Canada Centres for Youth link youth and employers. The Centres provide young people with job postings, interview advice, résumé building and job search strategies and employers with a location to post job openings. SCCYs also provide valuable information on health and safety in the workplace.
Employers and homeowners looking for short-term help are also encouraged to call the SCCY because they offer enthusiastic young workers who are available for odd jobs, such as lawn work, clerical duties, painting or flyer distribution. Students need only to come into the office and sign up for the Odd Job Squad to be eligible for these casual positions.
This year, employers interested in using our services and youth looking for summer employment can visit the Orangeville SCCY between 8:30am – 4:00pm at 210 Broadway Ave. Orangeville, call (519) 942 3000, fax (519) 941 2504, or e-mail Adriana.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Job postings are available online at www.jobbank.gc.ca, under “Student/Youth Job Search”, “Ontario”, “Kitchener and Area”, and then “Orangeville.” For more information on Service Canada services for youth, call 1 800 O-Canada or visit servicecanada.gc.ca.
