The Job Action Centre (JAC) is a 16 week paid employment program that works with young adults who wish to further develop their employability skills. The first 6 weeks of programming involves intensive pre-employment skill building where participants learn how to market themselves to employers, participate in various certification workshops and search for a 10 week placement. Once a placement is secured, participants work for 28 hours per week, where employers train and assist them in developing skills associated with that industry. The goal is to have the participant become a successful member of their team where they have the opportunity for permanent hire after the 10 weeks have been completed.
Some certificate workshops that are offered include:
- Smart Serve
- Conflict Resolution in the Workplace
- Conflict Resolution; Negotiations
- Emergency First Aid/CPR-C/AED
- Safe Food Handling
