Code Youth offers wage subsidies to encourage organizations to give graduates an opportunity to gain real workplace experience to jumpstart their career. In return, the organization reduces their risk in financial outlay and gains a skilled individual that is highly motivated, ready to work, and eager to contribute.
The wage subsidy covers up to a maximum of the Ontario minimum which is currently $15.50/hour. The employment period requirement is for a total of 12 weeks for a minimum of 30 hours per week and up to a maximum of 40 hours per week.
Code Youth would discuss your needs in order to select one or more individuals who would be most suited for the task as well as most aligned with your mission. You can interview one or more individuals as you choose.
Once selected, you would provide the individual with an employment contract, add them to your payroll, provide them with on boarding, and treat them like any other employee. At the end of 12 weeks, you would invoice Code Youth for the agreement amount.
