Toronto mayor recognizes TTC for youth program

Posted on May 12, 2009

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) was recognized Monday for the hiring of youth from 13 priority neighborhoods through a Youth Employment Program. Since its launch in 2006, the TTC has provided more than 300 employment opportunities.

 

“The Community Safety Plan is about opening doors for youth who might not otherwise have had the same opportunities as others in the city,” said Mayor David Miller. “This partnership between the City’s Youth Employment Partnerships program and the TTC captures the spirit of the plan and provides employment for youth from priority neighborhoods. I want to congratulate and thank everyone involved.”

 

In support of the Mayor’s Community Safety Plan, the TTC human resources department developed an outreach and recruitment plan whereby job opportunities were specifically allocated for youth in the priority neighborhoods. Young adults were given the opportunity to meet directly with a TTC recruiter to demonstrate their enthusiasm face-to-face, and a youth-friendly point of entry into the TTC was created.

 

“Giving a young person an opportunity to secure a meaningful job and work experiences is critical to the health of our city,” said TTC Chair Adam Giambrone. “I’d like to express my gratitude to TTC and City of Toronto staff for making this Youth Employment Partnership the success that it is.”

 

The youth have been hired into the rail and bus departments, revenue operations, marketing, wheel-trans and finance.
