Smart Start Youth Employment Program
Smart Start is a life changing program that helps young women set and achieve
education and employment goals and work towards financial self-sufficiency. Smart
Start participants are paid a training allowance, earn wages, and receive dependent
care, transportation and other supports to enable them to focus on their future.
If you are a young woman living in Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, Hastings or
Prince Edward County, are between 15 and 30, and are not currently working or in
school, we encourage you to click here to complete the application form.
