Employment Project

We are committed to creating innovative programming and supports that allow our students to realize their potential. Our Employment Project has been developed in partnership with Prospect Human Services to prepare every graduating student with the skills for ongoing employment. This extra-curricular program focuses on enhancing practical learning experiences to build independence and work skills through part-time employment.

Students receive coaching that guides them through obtaining and maintaining a job. Each student will learn a variety of skills, including resume writing, job search techniques, interview preparation, co-worker communication, work ethic, time management, scheduling, on-the-job problem solving, and performance reviews.

The impact of participating in the workforce has been shown to be quite dramatic for a number of students, often having a strong positive influence on their confidence and performance within the classroom.

We know that our students are dedicated, hard-working individuals who have a unique perspective, and we’re confident that workplaces across Calgary will benefit from their participation.
