YESS program returns with training for youth aged 15 to 30

Parkland College is running another session of the Youth Employability & Skills Strategy (YESS) program. Introduced earlier this fall, the initiative is designed to help youth between 15 and 30 years of age train for their future and secure employment.

The program features diverse training areas and target outcomes. Participants receive advanced Essential Skills training, life skills/soft skills, and employment readiness. Students are mentored throughout the program and given on-the-job training opportunities. They also acquire industry certifications including First Aid/CPR, Food Safety, Serve It Right, STEC Customer Service, Mental Health First Aid, and more.

The 2021 program runs from Jan. 4 to Mar. 26. Classes are scheduled Monday to Friday, 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Parkland College Main Campus in Yorkton.

Students must pre-register. Intake is underway.
