The Digital Skills for Youth program (DS4Y) was set up to connect under-employed post-secondary graduates with small businesses and not-for-profit organizations to give them the opportunity to use and improve their skills. The ultimate goal is to prepare them to find a long-term job in a changing digital economy. The DS4Y program helps under-employed post-secondary graduates combine relevant work experience with digital skills training, in an internship, so they can successfully enter the labour market.
The DS4Y program is part of the Career Focus section of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS).
You can submit an application using the form in the DS4Y PROGRAM – FOR EMPLOYERS section if you want to take on interns for six months and have 100% of their salaries financed.
The terms and conditions of the program are subject to change.
