Program Description

This program is intended to provide students with an opportunity to discover and develop appropriate work skills, and to provide a supportive environment in which they can apply those skills. The program provides students the opportunity to participate in eight classroom sessions that:

  • explore options for employment
  • teach methods for completing applications forms and resumes
  • practice appropriate interview skills
  • ensure awareness / knowledge about safety
  • develop the skills needed to secure and maintain employment.

A manual has been developed that supports the classroom and training component of this program. Upon completion of training, students participate in on-site work experience for a maximum of 30 hours per year. At present the number of students participating in this program range between 90 – 100 students.
