Youth Employment Services YES is the leading provider of employment services and programs to vulnerable youth in the greater Toronto region. YES programs and services give unemployed young people ages 15-30, the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to secure and maintain employment.

YES is passionate in our belief that educated, employed, and engaged young people possess the power to solve the world’s toughest problems. For young people with barriers to employment such as homelessness, a lack of formal education, a criminal record and drug abuse, overcoming these hurdles sometimes seems impossible. This is where YES steps in to support youth in conquering these barriers by providing free programs and services to get their lives back on track.

Investing in vulnerable youth supports them to successfully transition into adulthood and lead resilient lives. Positive transitions into adulthood represent a critical time for transforming and breaking intergenerational cycles of poverty. It is a time when youth are able to expand their opportunities through education, skills training and personal development, ultimately laying the foundation for healthy lives.
