The Mobilizer

Who We Are

The Mobilizer is a mobile employment information and referral service geared toward assisting youth with all their employment needs and providing accurate referrals when necessary. The Mobilizer travels to communities within the former City of York, Jamestown, Jane/Finch, Flemingdon Park, Victoria Village and Thorncliffe Park. Opting for locations that are visible to the community, the Mobilizer will stay at one location for three to four weeks at a time. Youth can obtain information on education and training, employment/job search assistance, health and safety issues, social and community services. The Mobilizer seeks to educate youth on a wide range of issues, equip them with the tools necessary to obtain employment and assist them with all their job search needs. The Mobilizer keeps moving to keep youth moving!
