Issue 5 (October/November 2013) of reachAbility's VIEWLETTER is now out. It features an animated video made by our Gateway Program clients, capturing Daniel's experience in the program. Stay tuned for three more animated Gateway videos. Gateway cooperates with mainstream employers throughout the HRM to provide youth living with disabilities the opportunity to gain employment experience in their field of interest. This provides participants the opportunity to tap into their potential as employees and members as of their community.
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.
