The YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region has a long history of delivering employment, enterprise and newcomer services in the community. Committed to helping people reach their full potential, our employment programs are designed to enhance the skills of youth and adults to prepare them for meaningful jobs in the workforce.
Some of our earliest initiatives included the creation of a night school for newsboys, finding employment for young women in the late 1800s and founding Carleton College in 1941, an institution for part-time evening study, which later became Carleton University.
Today our vibrant offering of employment programs and services include:
- Employment Access Centres
- Canada-Ontario Job Grant
- Language Assessment and Referral Centre
- Newcomer Information Centre
- Power of Trades
- Y Enterprise Centre
