The Department of Youth and Workforce Services created the Service Navigation System as a point of universal access for all young people in the City of Albany. The purpose of the Service Navigation System is to create a comprehensive system of youth employment/development services that maximizes existing community resources, contributes to the overall development of youth and guides them towards becoming self-sufficient adults.
This system has three outcome objectives:
- Increase youth’s job skills, experience and knowledge to enhance their future opportunities;
- Improve youths’ motivation in school and knowledge of post-secondary employment and training opportunities.
- Improve youth awareness of community issues and participate in community activities.
