Learn about our new Youth Enabled Program - Enable youth with a disability to work.

The Neil Squire Society's Youth Enabled Program is an employment program for youth with disabilities. The program prepares youth to make a successful transition into the labour force by helping them obtain and maintain employment.

They are looking for employers interested in supporting these youth and enabling them to gain on-the-job work experience.

The Neil Squire Society will cover all costs, wage and WCB coverage for the individual, for the duration of the 8 weeks, 20 hours per week.

  • The possibility of hiring the youth on contract, part-time, or full-time, after their 8 weeks of work experience.
  • Provide the youth with a reference letter upon completion of the placement.
  • Meet with the Neil Squire Society staff and provide feedback to assist in the youth's professional development.
