Walkerton youth job centre closes for the season

The Walkerton Service Canada Centre for Youth will close for the season on Friday, July 30.

 “The summer was extremely successful,” said Emily Grubb, youth centre co-ordinator. “We helped a large number of young people with their job searches, résumé and cover letter writing, interview techniques and information on employment standards, health and safety in the workplace and wage rates.”

The Walkerton Centre helped local employers find enthusiastic youth who were ready to work. It also hosted a number of events designed to connect employers and youth and to promote the benefits of hiring young people during the summer.

Some of the most successful promotional events included The Walkerton Free Family Fun Day, Hire a Youth Week, Odd Job Squad Week, and Jail for Jobs. The Walkerton Centre staff appreciates the many employers, youth and community organizations that helped to make these events such a success.

The Walkerton Centre staff is looking forward to working with the community again next summer. For more information on Service Canada services for youth, call 1- 800-O-Canada
