Portage la Prairie Manitoba Youth Job Centre Open for Business

Keelin  Horning

By Keelin Horning

The Portage la Prairie Manitoba Youth Job Centre is open once again for the summer! Centres across Manitoba are in their 39th year of successfully supporting youth employment in Manitoba. The Portage la Prairie Manitoba Youth Job Centre (MYJC) is sponsored by Manitoba Children and Youth Opportunities in partnership with Employment Manitoba and serves the communities of Oakville, McGregor, Poplar Point and High Bluff.

My name is Keelin Horning and I am the Portage la Prairie and area MYJC Youth Engagement Leader for the summer of 2014. I have just completed my 2 year of study at University of Winnipeg and I am very excited to be back in the community.

The MYJC is designed to meet the employment needs of students and youth, as well as the needs of employers who have vacant positions to fill, by offering a free referral service to those who wish to hire an eager, hard-working young person. Employers of all types – business and household – can take advantage of the free services the Centre provides. Only the most qualified candidates are referred, and the employer always has the final hiring decision.

We encourage students and youth over the age of 12 to register with our office. If you are seeking full-time, part-time, or casual employment, need help with your resume, or want to expand your job search or interview skills, just drop by and we will be happy to work with you.

The Centre will also be holding an information night Wednesday June 4th at the PCI library from 6 till 8pm. Everyone is invited to drop in learn more about the centre’s summer plans.

I am looking forward to a great summer in our communities. If you have any questions or employment needs, please feel free to call 204-239-3089 or stop by the MYJC office at 1016 Saskatchewan Ave. East from 830-430. I hope to hear from you soon!
