Urgent call for support to protect Toronto’s most vulnerable youth during COVID-19

donate-now

We are reaching out to you with an urgent request for support. With thousands of youth being displaced every day we need your help to serve and support them. Your donation will support reskilling youth in cloud technologies, provide living supports and wrap around supports to youth, counselling, job placements, mentorship, mental health supports, and subsidies to employers to hire youth in in-demand jobs.

We are faced with a dual crisis of gigantic magnitude: a truly global pandemic of unimaginable proportion that will require a human effort only matched in war time and a whole economy that is collapsing under our eyes. Millions of people are losing — and will lose — their jobs. Thousands of companies have no choice but to cease their operations, perhaps for good.

The Ontario Government has recognized the need for Youth Employment Services to remain available to serve the youth in our community, and expand our services, and YES has quickly responded while simultaneously keeping our community’s health and safety at the forefront of our operations. YES, being a leader in providing job readiness, employment and empowerment programming, is ready to continue to help youth face these unprecedented challenges, but we cannot do it without your help.

With your support we can continue to offer hope to youth and enhanced services that will help youth sustain their livelihoods, meet their basic needs and overcome the uncertainty and challenges they face with COVID-1

Please make an emergency donation now

Important Update Regarding YES Programs & Services

YES, as Canada’s leader in youth employment Services, is proud of its record of helping hundreds of thousands of youth gain employment and change lives. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, YES has put into place its business continuity plan, as requested by the Government of Ontario, which stated: “The work we do impacts the livelihood of many of our clients—and Ontario’s economy. That is why service continuity is important.” (David Carter-Whitney, Assistant Deputy Minister Employment and Training Division).

It is the expectation of the Government for service providers to operate in the most prudent manner and follow all the recommendations and health and safety guidelines, while still servicing Ontarians in need, especially our most vulnerable youth who might be seeking counseling, training and employment. As of March 24th until further notice, YES office locations will be closed to in-person appointments, however YES staff will continue to fully provide as much employment services as it can through, phone, virtual, on-line and remote counseling, training and more.
