Employment Boot Camp
Employment Boot Camp focuses on providing clients with the support and guidance they need to secure meaningful employment.
This program uses computers to explore and navigate the existing opportunities in today’s job market. Although clients may come to the program expecting to be directed towards employment, our staff carefully try and determine their strongest skills. We then match skills with jobs that are an appropriate fit so clients will be more likely to continue working there.
The process for securing a job requires commitment and persistence. Workshops are strategically planned to develop skills to build resumes and cover letters. Mock interviews also occur to help participants mentally prepare when faced with a panel of employers.

“I leave the program with something I haven’t had in a long time-hope. I’ve learned that I have a great deal to offer an employer and that I deserve to aim for more in life that simply a job to pay the bills.”
” The best course I have ever taken. It touches on very important issues in the work force today, such as self esteem, what employers are looking for, making an effective resume as well as goal setting and values within society. I think that this course will benefit any one who takes it, because I saw first hand the growth and progress I have made, as well as my peers.”
” [The program] has been instrumental in giving me the confidence and tools to know myself worth and see my place as a productive member of society. I am walking away more confident, and hopeful of my future than I had ever been in my life up to this point. This program is valuable beyond compare, as it provides an encouraging environment and I’ve never felt so valued and respected. I thank them for their time and effort, respect and encouragement.”
