YES Mentorship Program

The goal of the YES Mentorship Program is to connect YES clients to Industry Leaders (expert mentors) in order to build capacity, employability, networks and foster entrepreneurship in young people through establishing supportive, caring and trusting relationships with mentors.  At Youth Employment Services YES, our clients often request mentorship opportunities with those who are currently established in the workforce as they feel/know that having a career mentor to whom they can ask questions to about the job search, entering the job market, and about planning their own career path can be extremely valuable to them.

By becoming a mentor you have the opportunity to foster a fulfilling mentoring partnership with a young job seeker or entrepreneur. While being a mentor, as shown above, you will be adding so much value to your mentee’s life, you will also be personally fulfilled as you will increase your sense of connection to your community, grow your employment connections, and be a part of shaping the next generation of young professionals in the GTA.

Join our YES Mentorship Hub through Ten Thousand Coffees, giving hundreds of youth the opportunity to seek and find mentors to help guide them in their career journey or entrepreneurial endeavors!
