In January, ten young Canadians started the Horizons Work Experience Program at Easter Seals House. When the province moved back to COVID-19 Alert Level 5 in February, our participants and staff worked quickly and didn’t miss a day in switching to virtual programming.
Adaptability and tech literacy are crucial employment skills in the 21st century, and our participants have them in droves! They took the challenges of this lockdown head on, continuing their eager job search and attending daily skills training workshops and certifications. We’ve since returned to in-person programming with robust pandemic protocols, and our participants are hard at work on the job hunt and in new supportive work placements.
Our goal is to provide people of all ages with physical, cognitive, and any other disabilities with the opportunity to participate in programs and services that aim to build inclusion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
