CHANGE Employment Program - WorkBC
As a WorkBC service provider, we offer pre-employment and job search services for survivors of any type of violence, trauma, or abuse. Survivors of financial, emotional, spiritual, physical, and sexual abuse live with different and lasting concerns that can often affect their ability to look for or keep employment. Our job is to understand, validate, and plan for the future with you. We'll help you create your individualized Action Plan, and we'll modify it as you move along in the Program. So, if you're ready to make a change in your life, and want the support of people who understand your background, this is the Program for you.
Sometimes preparing for work means learning new relationship skills: how to be more assertive, how to deal with authority, how to take initiative, and more. If these sound like skills you need as you prepare for work, you will benefit from 1:1 or group counselling. Sessions are provided by Clinical Counsellors with advanced training in working with Survivors of Violence or Abuse.
If you are ready for volunteer work, part-time or full-time employment, we can help you find work that fits for you! Through our career decision-making process, you may find you need short-term certificate training, work clothes, or a new resume or cover letter. We can help with all of those, and more. With our wide network of employer contacts in and around Kamloops, we help you find your next job.
To take part in the Seasons Change Employment Program, you must be eligible to work in BC, believe that the issues resulting from either recent or historical trauma, violence, or abuse are directly impacting your employment success, be available for 3 days / week of programming, and have some level of volunteer or paid employment as your Program Goal. If this fits for you, please contact our office 250-314-0377 x114 for an Intake appointment.
