Gateway participants Daniel, Rob, Kayleigh and Kent created live-action animated videos to capture their journey here at reachAbility, particularly in the Gateway program. You can now watch all four videos via the playlist above.
Gateway is currently in session with new participants Naomi, Rob, Olas, Josh and Gillian.
The Gateway program cooperates with mainstream employers throughout the HRM to provide youth living with disabilities the opportunity to gain employment experience in their field of interest. Participants receive four weeks of training and workshops resulting in a greater sense of self-awareness, self-esteem and confidence. Participants are then placed on an 18-week paid work placement to get hands-on employment in their community.
Our next Gateway session begins on May 12, 2013. If you are interested in referring a client and/or learning more about the program, please visit the Gateway page on our website or contact us.
