Find Work & Volunteer Opportunities

We know how to tough it can be for young people to find work out there. A common challenge goes something like this: the job you want requires experience, but how are you supposed to have experience in a job you're trying to get? We get it and we're here to help.

The City's Youth Employment and Career Development Strategy has three primary objectives:

  • To help young people gain work experience and exposure to City functions and projects;
  • To facilitate the school-to-work transition by helping students draw relevant skills and knowledge from their education and apply these in the workplace; and,
  • To demonstrate leadership by showcasing City initiatives and engaging community stakeholders and businesses to provide career opportunities for young people.

Youth Volunteering in the City

Volunteering for one of the City's youth advisory committees is an excellent opportunity to get involved in the local-decision making process. Youth committees allow you to connect with peers and members of the community, hone your communication skills, boost your resume and provide input on a number of important issues.

Here are a few youth committees in the City:

Children & Youth Initiatives Fund Committee

Each year the City invites three young people who live in the City to participate in the Children and Youth Initiatives Fund Committee to review grant applications for children and youth programs.
