New Beginnings

Stella's Circle

New Beginnings is a full time employment preparation and skills training program for adults who have experienced barriers to employment or who have had long periods of unemployment as the result of mental health issues or other events in their lives. Participants take part in learning basic life skills, communication skills, career exploration, creative workshops and job search. The program includes a 12-week module that includes group work facilitated by a personal development instructor that focuses on employment preparation coupled with creative workshops such as theatre arts, creative writing, photography and cooking. Following this, another 12-week module introduces participants to employment opportunities in the SBCS Food Services or Trades Helper training programs. The objective is to provide participants with opportunities to explore their interests and link them with training that will lead to employment.
