Employment Readiness Program

Training and Supportive Transitional Employment


We are here to help people who want to start working. Here is a brief look at our program:

Please note: There is the option to complete this program in a co-ed or a women's only environment.


Every new participant attends an information session to learn the full scope of the Employment Readiness Program, what Mission Possible offers, and to determine if our program is a good fit for them.

Join activity: 

  • Information session
  • Employment readiness forms


After employment readiness forms are signed, trainees enter a 4-day workshop focused on soft skills, employment readiness, and personal well-being. As a self-directed job search begins, MP invites trainees to meet with one of our trained employment coaches who can then offer a referral to an interview in our social enterprises.

Train activities: 

  • Soft-skills workshops (four 2 hour sessions)
  • One-on-one coaching


Many trainees, now associates, are hired directly by Mission Possible through one of our social enterprises. This is a 6-month transitional opportunity that provides a paid context for mastering the soft-skills necessary to move back into permanent work. 

Transition activities:

  • Competitive job in an MP social enterprise
  • Continued one-on-one coaching


MP’s ultimate goal is to see participants build a sustainable livelihood through finding and maintaining employment beyond their 6-month transitional opportunity in our social enterprises. MP continues supporting individuals as they transition into their new job through goal setting, continued coaching, and a newfound community who celebrates their success.

Sustain activities:

  • Seeking and maintaining long-term employment
  • Continued coaching
