Youth Employment Services
The Baccalieu Trail Youth Employment Centre is an initiative of Mariner Resource Opportunities Network Inc. (M-RON) and is funded by the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Market Development Agreement. The mandate of the Baccalieu Trail Youth Employment Centre is to deliver a full range of career and employment related services to youth, ages 15-30, with a focus on those facing multiple barriers to employment. These services include Youth Employment Counselling, a Career and Employment Information Resource Centre, Group Information Sessions, and many more additional services.
Youth Employment Counselling
Youth can meet with a Youth Employment Counsellor to discuss their career and employment goals. We can help you develop your own personal action plan! Our services include career decision making, skills enhancement, job search, employment maintenance, or any other career and employment need of your choice.
Also, we understand that travel can be a barrier for many youth. Therefore, we offer Outreach Services which means our Youth Employment Counsellors can meet with you in a location that is more convenient and closer to your community.
