Experience Ontario (ExO) is about career exploration. An opportunity for eager high-school graduates to be coached and mentored into knowledgeable and technically-skilled candidates for future employment.

As a valuable employer, you have the opportunity to mentor, develop and motivate a young person into an ideal candidate for your industry. Here is how the ExO program works:

  • A participant will register with your business for a three-month, full-time work placement. 
  • You pay the participant at least the minimum wage while receiving up to $2,000 in wage subsidies.
  • You can have your program participant enroll in up to two more placements, increasing your wage subsidies to $6,000 maximum (participants should be placed in different areas of your organization each placement).

Participants will be coached and supported throughout their placement(s) by YMCA career coaches. Your staff may also choose to mentor participants and develop their own coaching skills. These experiences will provide youth with the knowledge they need when deciding on what to apply for post-secondary.

This Employment Ontario program is funded by the Ontario government.
