A lack of education, uncertain job prospects, and low income are both a cause and an outcome of youth homelessness. Many young people face challenges when entering the job market and need various forms of support to seek out career-oriented training, gain positive work experience, and find and keep a stable, well-paying job.
The pay-by-day program was designed specifically to reach out to youth who are not yet ready for a traditional, fulltime job and to help them overcome a variety of barriers to employment.
The flexibility of these jobs, which can last anywhere from two hours to two days, provides youth with a practical, positive, and paid experience, without the pressure of long-term employment.
Dans la rue offers full and part-time job placement programs with a six-month duration.
These experiences, coupled with the support and guidance of our counsellors, can be the springboard to long-term employment opportunities that help put participants on the path to self-sufficiency.
