Community Living Algoma Summer Employment Success
For the past 25 years, Community Living Algoma has offered employment services for the people we support in our community. In the summer of 2015, the agency launched its very first summer employment program geared to transitional-aged youth.
A grant proposal was submitted through the Canada Summer Jobs program to help offset the costs of launching the project and in May it was confirmed that the agency would receive funds to hire three job coaches for the summer to work with the students.
Three students were selected to participate in the program. Community Living Algoma partnered with three local employers who offered the students jobs that totaled 30 hours per week for each person. The employers were responsible for paying the wages of those students.
With the initial success of the pilot program, Community Living Algoma intends to involve a greater number of young people in the summer of 2016.
If you are an employer wishing to participate in the summer employment program or a student wanting to get a summer job, please contact us at 705-256-7564.
