Call for Expressions of Interest for AMPLIFY- Deadline May 3
April 24, 2018
AMPLIFY 2018 REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST – HOST ORGANIZATIONS
AMPLIFY (Assisting My Potential – Labour Initiative for Youth) is a summer youth employment program offered by the Community Sector Council Newfoundland and Labrador (CSC NL) in partnership with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour (AESL). Through providing work experience and employability skills learning sessions, AMPLIFY’s ambition is to offer some motivating, perhaps life changing, moments to targeted youth.
AMPLIFY is looking for Host Organizations that will:
Assist to identify eligible youth from different educational backgrounds and bring them together where possible for networking opportunities and teambuilding activities
Locate jobs with other employers or create employment opportunities themselves
Provide or arrange career and personal development learning events
Assist CSC NL with monitoring and feedback of the program.
Host Organizations will generally engage groups of 2-6 youth. The emphasis is to engage youth who encounter challenges which may impact their ability to find or retain employment and who have had little previous exposure to the world of work.
Hosts will receive an administrative fee to support this undertaking, based on the wages paid but not more than 15% of total wages paid to the youth.
Employment periods will range generally between 25-35 hours per week and 5-8 weeks, with work being completed by the end of August.
AMPLIFY participants may work for nonprofit organizations or private business employers.
Nonprofit organizations receive 100% of NL minimum wage and Mandatory Employment Related Costs;
Private business employers receive $9.00 towards the hourly wage rate.
All employers must support participants to attend 25 hours of career and personal development as part of their paid employment. Career development may include CSC NL online and telephone sessions and regional gatherings in addition to sessions offered by Hosts.
