Vocational (job) training helps people choose and learn work that suits their skills and interests. Programs are available through local school districts and the department of education in each province.
A job helps you or your teen in many ways:

You gain self-esteem and a sense of purpose.
You interact with other people and may develop a larger social network.
Vocational training can help teens and adults:
Identify their strengths, interests, and physical skills.
Train for a particular job.
Prepare for work in many different areas, such as in offices, restaurants, hospitals, stores, or factories.
