“Niagara community leaders and graduates of the John Howard Society Jobs For Youth program gathered for graduation ceremonies in St. Catharines on August 23rd. The Jobs for Youth program is a co-operative effort between teachers, local employers, Job Gym and John Howard Society staff who find summer job placements for local youth. These individuals can earn high school credits while earning money and are presented, for many, with their first opportunity for work. The enthusiasm shown by the room full of graduates is testament to the program’s success.”

“…a job to me is an opportunity, a learning experience, a chance to show how good you will do in the workplace… a chance to show your skills… it made me feel accomplished that I was successfully going through my first job… this program really did change my life for the better and because of the experience and skills I gained from my time working this summer at my placement, I can go into the working world knowing that I’m prepared for whatever the world throws at me.”
