Momentum Now! Program

The pre-employment seminar actively introduces participant to all 5 key skill-building areas of the professional development curriculum through group-based employability skills training.
24 weeks of paid meaningful work experience (earning minimum wage at 37.5 hours a week) in a cooperating workplace, in their field of interest that participants help choose - all with the goal of transitioning successfully into ongoing employment.
