Start your journey seeking a part-time or summer job with CNIB Learning Academy’s Youth Job Club! 

There is no time like the present to begin your work experiences. Having a part-time or summer job will put some money in your pocket, and you give valuable skills that employers are looking for. Facilitated by staff with sight loss, this five-session program will give participants an edge in looking for your first summer or part-time job by exploring the following topics: 

  • Learn about what motivates you, and your working style through.
  • Find job opportunities and polish your elevator pitch.
  • Polish your resume and write a great cover letter. 
  • What do you need to get a job?
  • Preparing for job interviews.  
  • Disclosure: sight loss in the job application process.

Virtual sessions are hosted on Zoom every Tuesday (May 14 to June 18) from 7 to 8 p.m. Eastern Time.  Zoom information will be sent after registering.

Youth with sight loss who are interested in seeking part-time or summer employment, and who are eligible to work in their province of residence are eligible to attend this program.
