Career Focus Program: Step 1. What this program offers
The Career Focus Program (CFP) has recently been replaced by the Youth Employment and Skills Program (YESP). The YESP program is very similar to CFP with the exception that this program does not require the intern to have completed post-secondary education prior to starting the internship.
