The National Capital Region YMCA-YWCA 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:
- Self Employment Benefit Program
- Employment Access Centres
- Language Assessment and Referral Centre
- Newcomer Information Centre
- Power of Trades
