In response to the long-term need faced by marginalized youth and caregivers, we launched specialized employment offices named “Futures”. Futures Offices are a comprehensive hub for employment support, targeting youth and adults across socio-economic levels.
Futures specialized staff is available to guide youth and caretakers in making education and career decisions and to provide educational and professional options.
Soft skills training
Created in response to employers’ high demand for soft skills, the job readiness training (job interview, workplace behavior, personal development, etc.) improve employees’ employability and job retention.
Futures staff support clients in finding a job based on the client’s needs, interests and skills. Futures offices have developed privileged relationships with over 400 international and local companies to facilitate placement and ensure secure and dignified placements.
Clients interested in setting up or expanding a micro-enterprise can participate in a short technical training on entrepreneurship. A Futures staff is dedicated to each client to support the entire process of setting up and running the business.
Visitors have access to computers to work on their CV and/or cover letter with the support of a Futures staff. Clients can also access internet to conduct independent job search.
