During this webinar we will walk through the typical daily duties of the YouthBuild job developer (also called a placement specialist or career specialist) role, from mental toughness/orientation and active programming through placement.  Duties covered will include employer engagement, participant education and training activities, work experience development, transition to placement, and placement retention. 


Presenters will also describe the role of the job developer on the YouthBuild staff and how the job developer engages externally with different partners, including employers, apprenticeship sponsors, other training programs, and post-secondary institutions, as well as internal engagement with the different staff roles in the YouthBuild program.  Peer presenters will share how the role of the job developer is implemented in their respective programs.
