The Qalipu Linkages Program is a youth employment program funded by the Department of Advanced Education and Skills. The program provides participating youth with a 26-week career-related local job placement combined with regular workshops on employment skill-building topics. After a week of orientation, participants will conduct their own job search to find a placement that suits their skills and interests. Upon completion of the program, participants will earn a “completion bonus” to support their future career and education goals.
To be eligible for the Linkages program, participants must:
- Be a registered member of the QMFNB between the ages of 18 to 30;
- Be able to provide own transportation for employment and workshops in the Corner Brook area;
- Be non-EI eligible and have limited work experience (currently not receiving Employment Insurance (EI) benefits and have not received EI benefits within the last 3 years; or have not received EI maternity/parental benefits within the last five years);
- Have completed a minimum of level II high school, and have NOT completed post-secondary training. If an applicant has not completed high school or equivalent, they must be out of school for a minimum of six months prior to applying to the program.
