“Whatever the job – big or small, short or long term – we can help you fill it,” said Whitney McKinley, Youth Services Officer at the Guelph SCCY. “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.

“There is an ever-increasing demand for a skilled and adaptable workforce,” said Kyly Whitfield, Youth Services Officer, Guelph SCCY. “The skills, talents, knowledge and creativity of our young people are key to our future success. By working with local employers to help young people develop their skills and get valuable summer work experience, we are helping them prepare for the rapidly changing world of work.”

This year, employers interested in using our services and youth looking for summer employment can visit the Guelph SCCY between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at 259 Woodlawn Rd W, call 519-767-2559 or 519-767-2076, fax 519-376-3715, or e-mail . Job postings are available online at www.jobbank.gc.ca., under “Student Job Search”, “Ontario”, “Kitchener and area”, and then “Guelph.” For more information on Service Canada services for youth call 1 800 O-Canada or visit servicecanada.gc.ca.
