The Qalipu Linkages Program is a youth employment program funded by the Department of Advanced Education and Skills which will be delivered by the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation. This year the program will be offered in the Corner Brook area.
The program provides participating youth with a 26-week, career-related, local job placement combined with regular workshops on employment skill-building topics such as job readiness and career planning. After an initial week of orientation workshops, participants will conduct their own job search to find a placement that suits their skills and interests. To be eligible for the Linkages program, participants must:
- Be a registered Qalipu member between the ages of 18 to 30;
- Be non-EI eligible and have limited work experience
- Have completed a minimum of level II high school, and have NOT completed post-secondary education/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.
