YMCA and Providence Health Care's Inner City Youth Program are partnering to support youth with mental health challenges to get the confidence, skills and experience needed to kick-start their careers. This is a five-week, full-time program, which could lead to skills upgrading, certification and full-time employment. There is no charge for the program, plus participants receive a six-month, complimentary YMCA membership.

Participation criteria:
• Must be between 15 and 29 years old
• Not attending school
• Identifying mental health as a barrier to becoming or staying employment
• Eligible to work in BC
• Not eligible for EI benefits
