Partnership to Advance Youth Employment (PAYE) is a joint initiative between private sector employers and the City of Toronto. A group of business leaders are working to involve employers to increase access to economic opportunities for Toronto youth.
City staff and community partners provide individual support for all PAYE initiatives by offering employment guidance and coaching, connecting youth to community-based services and supports and matching qualified candidates to employment opportunities.
PAYE offers youth interviews with top-rated employers to help youth from local communities get a foot in the door. Since 2009, PAYE has successfully connected hundreds of young people to job opportunities with our employer partners.
