This is a full-day workshop for people on employment assistance that prepares them for transitioning into the workforce.
We offer job-specific clothing, personal care items and first impression training for job seekers. Participants gain hands-on experience that enhances their self-esteem and in turn, employability, by getting the tools and tips they need to make that critical positive first impression with future employers.
The people we help also leave the workshop with six new work-related clothing items and a gift bag full of personal care items, a cell phone and starter card (if needed), a haircut certificate from Donato Salons and financial literacy support by Credit Canada.
This innovative employment program was created in 2010 to address the needs of individuals struggling to secure employment. Clients are also facing the additional challenges of not having appropriate interview and work attire and the lack of personal hygiene products. These items are essential for confidence and dignity.
In addition to providing these essential basics, the program has an immediate impact on clients job search efforts because of our seminar’s holistic approach and philosophy.
This entails interactive and engaging speakers that cover key areas – health/wellness (stress management); credit/budgeting (financial literacy); first impressions training (attire, grooming, body language); mindfulness (positivity, power posing); networking (art of conversation, tone, handshake).
The transformation our clients is incredible to witness. They become more energized: They’ve regained their confidence and dignity.
