In 2012, ManpowerGroup Canada created the Ready-SET-Go! program in partnership with the Government of Canada to help youth between the ages of 15 and 30 who are facing barriers to employment. Success is achieved when participants obtain full time work or admission to full-time education or training within three months of program completion. The Ready-SET-Go! program is created and managed by ManpowerGroup; however, the cost of the program including salary of participants is funded by the Government of Canada.
Participants attend 4 weeks of intense in-class training on topics such as Dress for Success, Developing Self-Confidence, Career Planning, Financial Planning, Conflict Resolution, Managing Interpersonal Relationships and Public Speaking. Following the training, successful participants are provided with a 16-week work experience and on-the-job coaching at select Employer Partners.
