What is Youth Live?
Youth Live is a 28 week life and job skill development program
for individuals, aged 16 to 30, who have barriers to employment. Participants in our program participate in learning sessions and gain work experience by assisting with our business operations. Our main location is the Youth Live Enviro Depot at 947 Mitchell St in Halifax. Here participants learn customer service and other transferrable job skills that they can take to future jobs. Participants will strengthen life skills and explore options for the future while working in our businesses. Participants also earn money while they are participating in our program.
Who are we looking for?
- Youth aged 16-30
- Youth who are not in school
- Youth who are facing barriers to gaining meaningful employment
"The program exceeded my expectations. I learned a lot about leadership.
I never stayed at a job long enough before to become a leader. You get to
experience both, being on the bottom when you first start and then on top when
you are experienced and training other people. I was happy to have that
experience." Gabe H., May 2010.
