Youth employment service changing Nelson location

Kootenay Career Development Society is moving from the youth centre to its Vernon Street location

Submitted by WorkBC Centre

After many years of providing youth centred employment supports from the Nelson and District Youth Centre, Kootenay Career Development Society (KCDS) will now be delivering these services from its Vernon Street location in downtown Nelson.

KCDS remains committed to providing supports to youth through virtual and in-person employment counselling where appropriate. In addition, KCDS will continue to offer employment support to youth through student services across School Districts 8 and 10.

KCDS is grateful for the many years of successful partnership and collaboration with the youth centre staff and management. Special thanks to youth centre manager Jordan Martin for her expertise and dedication to serving this demographic.

Due to the substantial growth and expansion in programming experienced by both the youth centre and KCDS, the need for more physical space has become critical and is the key factor behind this decision. Both organizations will continue to work together to serve the needs of youth in the community.

Employment services for youth can be accessed at any WorkBC Centre, including those located in Nelson, Trail and Castlegar. A full suite of employment supports are available to job seekers of all ages, including one-on-one employment counselling, job search assistance, resume development, interview preparation, and training opportunities.

For individuals with limited access to technology, each WorkBC Centre is equipped with workstations, computers, printers, photocopy, scan and fax services. Resource Advisors are available to connect with job seekers at all WorkBC Centre locations.

Contact the Nelson WorkBC Centre at 250-352-6200, or by email at centre-nelson@workbc.ca.
