YouthWorx is an annual summer employment program developed and led by Toronto Community Housing since 2013. YouthWorx focuses on employing young people in various small scale labour jobs, including community clean ups, community gardening and beautification (weed pulling, basic shrub pruning), light cleaning and painting. The program employs 14 to 19 year olds as team participants (Field Workers) and 18-29 year olds as site leads (Building Community Facilitators). In 2015, YouthWorx expanded to include assistance in seniors' communities.
