CAVE Youth Employment Program


In response to the situation with COVID-19, our Training Group programs at Douglas College are now being offered online and will return to in-person sessions when it is safe to do so.  Douglas College is following protocols from Provincial Health Authorities as your safety is important to us.

Please check below for upcoming online sessions. 

Are you 17-29 and looking for your fit in the workplace?

Join the CAVE and get real tools and training to find and keep a steady job that you like. CAVE is a place for youth to identify job goals, explore careers, build workplace skills and confidence and connect with employers.

During your 17 weeks at CAVE you will create a plan to get where you want to go in the labour market. Transportation supports provided.
