INVESTING IN FUTURES
Employability is a pre-employment program designed to connect disadvantaged young adults looking for job opportunities with local businesses. This program allows them to work past current barriers and break the cycle of dependency by providing them with life skills and hands-on employment experience. The goal of the program is to prepare young adults for the workforce by creating mentoring relationships and exposing them to the daily routines of employment. Through a two part series, youth will obtain the required skills to confidently navigate through their work experience placement including general workplace expectations, etiquette and employment preparation. Once youth have successfully completed the initial life and employment skills training within Street Culture, they will then be gradually transitioned into the work placement with a partnered business to successfully utilize their skills and gain valuable on-the- job training!
