No cost, one-to-one job coaching for youth age 17-29 to learn new skills, develop confidence and feel supported to thrive. A safe space and no pressure.
Starting out in the employment world can be daunting. Without support, it can be difficult to find a good job. Some employers expect previous experience. Others only offer young people unpaid work experience.
But we’re going to change your odds.
Amy left school and home when she was 17 because of complicated stuff going on in her life at the time. Soon after she needed money to pay rent and bills. She found a part-time job as a server, but it wasn’t enough. She couldn’t survive on such little money. Late one evening she was looking for help online when she came across our website. Two days later, she was meeting with a job coach and began working on a plan to move forward. Amy and her job coach met weekly until she felt confident to make a change. Amy now works a fulfilling, full-time job and is even able to put aside money for savings. The best part is, Amy is happy in her life.
With the help and support from our job coaches, finding meaningful work doesn’t have to be tough. We are a safe and encouraging environment where you can learn new skills, develop confidence and feel supported to thrive rather than simply survive.
