Project Description

YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce

The YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce is a charity dedicated to building a caring, healthy community by creating opportunities for all people to achieve personal growth in spirit, mind and body.

Our Employment Services offer support and assistance to job seekers looking for work as well as to employers looking to hire.  Job seekers can access information and referrals to various Employment Ontario Programs and will receive one -on-one support with all of their job search needs.  Employers receive assistance through matching of qualified candidates to employer job postings, assistance with Job Fairs, access to our free on-line Job Board, and wage subsidies to offset training costs where appropriate. Also, the Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG) provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce. COJG will provide direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It is available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees. Contact the Y for more information.

Our Community Services include:  The House Support Program, Youth Justice Programs including Justice Circles and Diversion, Adult Justices Programs including Direct Accountability and Community Service Orders, Youth Gambling Awareness Program, and the Youth in Transition Program.
