Program Description

Last updated: September 20th, 2022

Due to Covid-19, we have currently adapted our referral program to ensure the safety of participants and staff. Please contact our Employment Facilitator, Chelsey Finney, at 204-987-8661 ext. 663 or for more details on current programming.

Please note: As of February 14, 2022 our offices are open in a limited capacity by appointment only with procedures and guidelines in place for the safety of our clients, staff, and community members. Clients will have the option to meet with staff virtually if necessary. They will also be expected to job hunt independently from home, or job search in-person at YES by booking computer time. Please verify your client’s technology access before referring them to YES and include any information on the referral form.

About the Program

Each client will start with a pre-booked, orientation session at YES, where they will receive sheets for “job search tracking” (JST) to complete from home or at YES. For the remainder of week one, clients will attend employability workshops each day. These workshops cover various topics such as resumes, cover letters, job searching, interviews, and success in the workplace. Clients will also attend a weekly presentation from a community agency, to increase their connections to community resources.

In week two, clients will attend 3 in-person appointments. On the first day, they will work with an Employment Facilitator to build and edit their resume and cover letters. On the second day, clients will have one-on-one support with job searching and interview preparation. On the third day, clients will meet with staff to receive resourcing for barriers they may be facing, so that they feel more work ready. For example, if a client is experiencing unstable housing or mental health concerns, they will work with YES staff to connect them to resources that can help.

From week three onwards, clients will complete at least 1 job search tracking sheet per week, and forward images or a copy of the completed sheet to Chelsey Finney, their designated Employment Facilitator, by Sunday evenings for next day reporting. Clients are expected to apply for 15 to 20 jobs per week.


As a referring agent, you will be notified of your clients’ compliance with the orientation AS well as receive weekly reporting regarding their program expectations.
