Things have been busy here in the Lifetime Networks Employment program!
We had a rush of new intakes to our program in September, as everyone got into the back-to-school/back-to-work spirit! As these new job seekers work their way through the Discovery process, our more established program participants are working hard at developing their job skills.
Our Tuesday Workshop group will be exploring employment topics over the next couple months with the help of Open Future Learning, a staff training tool that also allows for side-by-side learning between staff and participants. Meanwhile, our full day Friday group will continue to focus on pre-employment and job readiness skills under the guidance of our fantastic employment instructors.
We are pleased to share that all of this hard work is paying off! Amanda recently found a job at Subway and Jeff has just begun working for Tim Hortons. After a summer of training and volunteering at Cascadia Martial Arts, Nicholas is now a Taekwondo instructor.
Kudos to you three, and to all of our other employed/unemployed job seekers!
It’s been a fun Fall season so far, and we look forward to everything Winter will bring.
