Ontario Youth Internships
The Youth Internship program, otherwise known as YI, is a Government of Canada initiative, administered by Industry Canada, that aims to provide Canadians with affordable public access to the Internet and the skills they need to use it effectively.
YI helps Canadians, wherever they live, take advantage of emerging opportunities in the new global knowledge-based economy. Under YI, public locations like schools, libraries and community centres act as "on-ramps" to the Information Highway, and provide computer support and training.
Participants (youth 15-30) work as interns at YI centres throughout Canada, helping individuals, community organizations and small businesses improve their knowledge and effective use of the Internet and related information technologies. Specific activities include: Delivering Internet training sessions,
Researching and developing Web sites, Drafting publicity materials. Organizing information fairs and special events and Providing technical support to the community access site.
Madoc and Marmora cardholders are welcome to use the Tweed Library, as we have reciprocal borrowing privileges.
