Skills Launch

Through a blend of experiential learning and workplace experience, we connect newcomer jobseekers with local employers.

The Skills Launch Youth and Skills Launch Adult projects supports and guides immigrants and refugees. It combines occupational orientations, workplace essential skills, language training, and supportive work placements. The program supports both young and adult newcomers in their process to learn, explore, and succeed in New Brunswick.

The two different programs are designed for the specific needs of newcomers aged 18 to 30, and newcomers aged 30+. Skills Launch puts its participants on the path to full-time work or further education and training. Participants in the full-time program learn about Canadian workplaces and the local labour market, hone their job search and interview skills, study career-focused language, receive wellness coaching and get local work experience through a paid job placement.
