EMPLOYMENT & SUCCESS PLANNING

PROGRAM OUTLINE

The purpose of the Employment Program is to identify and remove barriers to employment through skills training, resume writing, and interview and networking skills.

 

Employment, Life Skills & Training (ELST) is a program funded by the BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres . The ELST initiative is part of the BCAAFC’s strategy to increase employment and training among Indigenous people.

Building on the previous success of the Northern Corridor Initiative, ELST is expanding into 14 Friendship Centres which have the resources and training to help clients find meaningful employment.

ELST services include:

  • Pre-employment assistance

  • Life skills programs

  • Wrap-around programs and in-house referrals (housing, mental health, child care and more)

  • Resume and cover letter building

  • Education and training certificates

  • Career planning through self-assessments

  • Interview skills

  • Computer access

  • Job boards, fairs and employer networking
