The Key Activities in the Skills Link Program are:
Wage subsidies for work placements and mentorships for youth who are not in school to enable them to develop employability skills and support their educational and career development;
Training experiences that support youth in acquiring skills needed for work placements.
Eligible participants are youth aged 15-30 who are out of school, unemployed or underemployed.
The goal is to help youth acquire skills by providing wage subsidies for a mentored work experience. Youth will be motivated and have a better career plan and they can attend training while employed
