OYAP is a unique and exciting program that offers further flexibility for young people in acquiring their early childhood education.
Walden Daycare CentreWe at Lous Body Shop found the OYAP program to be both beneficial and rewarding. It gave us the opportunity to introduce a student to a trade which he may have never considered in this computer age. The demand for trades people is high and will only rise.
Lous Body ShopWe at Regent Carstar Collision have had a prosperous experience with the OYAP Program. The program gave an OYAP student a chance to enrich his auto body knowledge. At the same time he was very productive for our company. The cooperation from the staff in charge of the program was exceptional which resulted in an opportunity for the student to become a full time employee as an automotive and collision damage repairer.

Former Four Points Hotel As a parent and an employer I can honestly say that my son would not be where his is today if it were not for OYAP. OYAP has kept him in school, has given him a purpose and career direction and has made a tremendous difference in his life. We cannot say enough about OYAP
His transformation is amazing. Our son is now an OYAP Ambassador who has a career he can look forward to. He is currently completing the level one in-school training in welding at Cambrian College. We are extremely thankful to OYAP for making a tremendous difference in his life.
