IT World Magazine Interviews YES CEO on Cyber Security Program, Ukraine Refugees

Post-secondary Canadian institutions are increasingly offering cybersecurity courses to help fill the demand.  The latest is a not-for profit agency called Youth Employment Services (YES) that trains disadvantaged and vulnerable youth aged 15 to 29. Next month it starts a cybersecurity course with paid training in conjunction with IBM and funded by the Government of Ontario, Skills Development Fund.  “We’re excited to train more at-risk youth in an area of great need and help close the [cybersecurity] skills gap,” Lang said in an interview.  Surveys show there’s a shortage of cybersecurity workers in Canada.  He agreed with a suggestion that most employers want experienced IT workers. But, he added, YES has partnerships with a number of companies for job placement. The charity has been able to convince them to look beyond their desire for experienced people in many fields, he said, particularly of the value of hiring at-risk and racialized youth.

YES CEO, Tim Lang discusses drop in youth labour force participation

 CFRA Ottawa

 With the economy bouncing back and help from organizations like YES, youth employment has increased significantly since the height of the pandemic.  The bad news is, fewer youth are looking for work.  YES President & CEO discussed the situation and possible solutions on CFRA Ottawa.  “The good news is the pandemic has made more youth reflective and seek up-skilling and new job training, like the ones YES offers in cloud computing  or  cyber security, funded by the Government of Ontario.  The bad news is we have seen an increase in mental health issues which may be part of the reason fewer youth are actively looking for work”, Lang said.  “We are hopeful originations like YES, which help give confidence and new hope to youth, along with our cognitive behavioural therapy and other help for mental health issues, will result in more youth engagement in job searches and employment.  This will help create a positive and fulfilling life for so many”.
