Community PEERS Placement Opportunity

Community PEERS is looking to collaborate with agencies across Toronto to provide paid placements for youth 18-29:

  • Hire highly trained youth peer support workers and provide them with job experience
  • Community PEERs provides payment for trainees during the duration of the placement at $21-$23 per hour
  • Looking for Full time and Part time placements for 12-20 weeks in the youth and mental health sector

Community PEERS is a community-based program that was developed in response to youth violence prevention support requested from community stakeholders and frontline workers across the City of Toronto. All Peer Support Workers in Community PEERS have received a certified, 12-week Peer Support Training through The Community Healing Project, have lived experiences of community violence exposure, and practical experiences of working with youth vulnerable to involvement in serious violence and crime.
