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:
  • First, sign up for an information session at our MP Office. This will only take about 30-40 minutes. During this session, you will learn more about how we can support you on your journey towards steady employment and the transitional work we have to offer. We’ll ask you to fill in a form if you are interested. After, we can sign you up for the next workshop.

  • 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, we will connect you with one of our coaches and refer you for an interview.
     
  • After the interview, we will set up an 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 shifts every week for six months.
     
  • While working with us, you will receive one-on-one coaching on a bi-weekly basis with your coach to work on your goals and steps to employment after the 6-month contract.

We run two tracks of the ERP:
