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.

- Be a registered member of the QMFNB between the ages of 18 to 30;
