NOTE: Due to COVID-19, intake to the Employment Readiness Program is paused. Please contact the office if you would like to be notified when intake resumes.
Do you want to work, but are you not sure how to start or what steps to take? We are here to help you! We offer pre-employment training, one-on-one coaching and support to help you achieve your goals. Get involved with our Employment Readiness Program (ERP) by following these steps:
We run two tracks of the ERP:
Info Session Co-ed: Every Thursday 09:00am and 10:30am
Info Session Women’s Track (all self-identified women): Every Wednesday 10:30am
To come to our information session, you do not need to bring anything. You can either sign up online HERE, by phone or in person in our office - or just drop-in. (Please make sure you are on time.)
Everyone is welcome and no commitment is needed at this point.
When you’re part of our Employment Readiness Program, you have the opportunity to start work with the Mission Possible’s Clean Team. Our Clean Team works morning and afternoon shifts, 7 days a week. The teams go out in different Neighborhoods in Vancouver for exterior cleaning; mostly litter and needle pick-up.
What you’ll learn and gain:
You will also receive coaching from one of our coaches and meet lots of great people! We also provide a lunch to enjoy together as a team once a month.
“Keeping the neighbourhoods clean brings me pride. I get a lot of compliments from people, they say thank you and they smile when they see us around. It makes you feel good”
“To me it’s a miracle that MP helped me. I believe in myself again. I have motivation in myself again. MP taught to me to value myself again and be a better person”
“Overall, I just want to get up every day and go to work and do something where I feel like I am making a difference in my city and if I can help someone along the way, that would be icing on the cake”
