Discovering Your Opportunities
Born to Be
“Born to Be” is a full time, 21 week program focused on increasing living skills, employment readiness and providing valuable mentorship opportunities for 10 urban Aboriginal youth.
The program is divided into two, 10 week modules focusing on life skills development, increasing personal adaptability, career & employment preparation (including financial literacy), cultural & community activities as well as a mentorship component within a real work place environment. There is also a 1 week job transition component at the end of the program.
The intended goal, at the end of the program, is for participants to be closer to independence by developing an achievable action plan to enter/return to the workforce or school as well as an increased natural support system within the community they live.
