The Youth Skills Studio hires individuals between the ages of 18-29 for four-month associate positions in digital marketing, website development and systems administration. We are always looking for new applicants who would like to sharpen their technical and soft skills – or learn new ones! Participation is a paid experience.
The Youth Skills Studio offers invaluable experience for youth entering the workforce through integrated learning. Our associates learn by working on real projects for real businesses in our work-integrated learning environment. Workshops are held regularly to cultivate non-technical skills and we mentor and coach participants throughout their time with us, to help them translate the YSS experience into work and life.
In order to be responsive to the needs of youth people in our community, Civiconnect launched its very own region-wide Youth Advisory Committee. This committee gives young people a forum to discuss the issues that matter to them and inform programming direction for the Youth Skills Studio. The committee brings together a diverse group of youth with a wide range of interests and passions to collaborate on addressing the challenges facing youth. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
