Job Gym

edit this listing
The John Howard Society of Niagara is a non-profit organization that was established in 1949 and offers innovative programs which help build a sense of community. One of the many programs established was the Career Clinic in St. Catharines in 1976. In 1981, Youth and Community Employment Services (YACES) was established with funding provided predominately by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. The funding was directed primarily at youth. It started in St. Catharines then expanded to the Welland and Fort Erie areas. The John Howard Society of Niagara has two main categories of programs - corrections and employment. Corrections programs would include the Community Service Order, Intermittent Work, Diversion and Bail programs. Employment programs would include Job Finding Club, Starting Toward Employment Program (STEP) and the Job Connect program. December 1998 brought a new look to YACES called Job Gym. This new look enables youth to easily identify, remember and feel at ease with our services while relating searching for employment to attending a gym. Job Gym is still funded primarily by MTCU, but also receives funding from other sources such as Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC). Job Gym staff are trained in many employment related areas and are involved in staffing different resource areas, providing one on one employment counselling and referrals, presenting information to local high schools, conducting Job Fairs, providing a variety of workshops and much more.
