Employment Readiness Program

The Employment Readiness Program is a life-changing program at Mission Possible that is open to people looking to get back into the workforce. We support individuals experiencing barriers to employment to navigate their journey of returning to the workforce.

Are you ready to start working?

We offer pre-employment training, one-on-one coaching and support to help you achieve your work-related goals. You can get involved with our Employment Readiness Program (ERP) by following these steps:
  • Call our office at 604-253-4469, come by our office in person at 648 E. Hastings St, or email us at erp@mission-possible.ca to find out if the program is currently open for registration. Please be aware that we are experiencing a high level of demand for the program at this time.

  • Our Employment Readiness Workshop Series (three consecutive mornings) is a launching point into the program where you will learn to enhance valuable skills that will be applicable to any job!
  • When you have finished the workshop, you will have a referral meeting with one of our staff members before starting the program.
  • After the referral meeting, you will attend a workplace orientation. This orientation will be your first workday, so it’s paid! This is the starting point of your six-month paid work experience with MP. You will be scheduled for a minimum of two shifts a week for six months.
  • While working with us, you will receive one-on-one paid coaching on a bi-weekly basis with your coach to work on your goals and steps to employment after the six-month contract. You will also attend paid training sessions to improve your skills in the workplace and in the job search process.

We run two tracks of the ERP:

The Work

What you’ll learn and gain:
  • Team & independent work skills

  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to prioritize
  • Organizational skills
  • Increased confidence
  • Ability to explore different areas in Vancouver
