The NYLC began in 2005. It is an employment and educational resource centre for Native youth ages 15-30 years of age. The NYLC provides support and resources to youth including resume and cover letter writing, job search assistance, referrals to programs, job postings, free certification programs, and access to educational supports such as tutoring and online learning. Resources are available in key areas such as job search, career development, assisted computer applications and life management skills. Certificate and employment maintenance workshops are scheduled based on current and emerging needs amongst youth. Clients must possess a valid social insurance number (SIN). If youth do not have a valid SIN when they first access our resources, staff will help them obtain one. The NYLC is funded by Aboriginal Community Career Employment Services Society (ACCESS).
This placement is offered in partnership with the UBC First Nations House of Learning.
