Making the Transition (MTT) is a two-phase program, to assist at-risk youth (aged 16 to 30) who have left school and having difficulty getting established in the workforce. If that’s you, MTT can help you prepare for the job market by providing employability and life skills training through classroom and experiential learning activities. You’ll be paid an allowance while attending the six-week classroom part of the program. After that, we’ll help you get into a 12 week work experience placement with a local employer where you’ll be paid an hourly wage of at least $12.65 for up to 18 weeks with a mix of classroom and work placement experiences. In order to get into MTT, you’ll need to see an employment counselor at KES.
Youth that participate in MTT gain significant employment time and a regular pay cheque along with the possibility of continued work after the program ends. Most people that have participated in MTT projects have gone on to be successful in the workforce.
