Government Of Saskatchewan Invests In Skills Training Program For Young People

Released on November 26, 2019

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing in skills training for young people facing barriers to employment.  With a provincial investment of $135,000, the Regina Rainbow Youth Centre will continue to administer the Road to Employment (RTE) program.

The RTE program provides youth aged 18-25 years of age with personal, academic and employment training to reduce barriers to gaining employment.  This 47-week program cycle will provide 20 youth opportunities to identify and address personal obstacles, gain practical life skills and provide links to employment.  Each individual participating in the program is provided with Provincial Training Allowance to support their income during the duration of the program.

“The Government of Saskatchewan values partnerships with organizations like the Rainbow Youth Centre that provide programs and services to help Saskatchewan young people gain life and employability skills,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Helping individuals in our communities receive training for valuable skills is a priority for our government and will help provide our youth with the opportunity to succeed.”

“Rainbow Youth Centre is proud to assist youth in Regina,” Rainbow Youth Centre Executive Director Shelly Christian said.  “We are grateful for the funding from the Government of Saskatchewan for the Road to Employment Program and look forward to serving youth in the community for many years to come.”

The Regina Rainbow Youth Centre has delivered the RTE program in partnership with the provincial government for 22 years.
