CBI & CanAssist: CREATING ELIGIBILITY LIST
In anticipation of upcoming project funding we are currently creating an eligibility list.
What is CanAssist?
CanAssist is a unique and innovative program at the University of Victoria (www.uvic.ca) focused on using resources and expertise within the University and the greater community to develop and deliver technologies, programs, and services for people with disabilities. CanAssist envisions a society where all people have the opportunity to participate, contribute, and reach their full potential. More information on CanAssist can be found at www.canassist.ca.
TeenWork is a program offered by CanAssist that provides the opportunity for youth with disabilities and/or mental health conditions to secure successful and meaningful part-time employment while they are attending school. The Job Coach will be responsible for supporting participants in their search for employment through Group Based Employability Skills (GBES) and Employability Skills through Work Experience (ESWE).
The Job Coach is responsible for increasing employment outcomes, and assisting TeenWork Canada participants in finding appropriate employment within their communities. This comprehensive and collaborative process involves determining the employment needs of the participants and facilitating job placements. The Job Coach has duties involving networking, identifying opportunities, and consulting with employers to identify appropriate and meaningful positions within the community.
