Community Partnerships

community partnerships

At SMCDSB we’re blessed to be supported by our communities at large through partnerships.  Simply put, OYAP could not exist without employer support and mentorship. Our coop employers, OYAP sponsors & committee members provide the learning ground and the opportunity to foster the next generation of Simcoe Muskoka skilled trades men and women.


Why support OYAP?

  • Give a skilled young person a hand up
  • Employers are under no obligation to pay or hire OYAP students
  • WSIB coverage provided
  • Working at Heights training provided
  • OYAP students do not affect ratios
  • Increased company awareness throughout the community
