About the Program

Specially designed for women, the Focus for Change program provides an opportunity for women to participate in academic and self-assessment, and career/employment planning. Based on the results, students will research careers/employment that best suit their needs. Through information interviews, job shadows and labour market research, students will develop realistic goals and create an action plan to achieve those goals. Individually and in groups, students will build effective communication skills, practice assertiveness, and build problem-solving abilities. The program also includes participation in a work/training shadowing opportunity and development of a learning plan to prepare for GED, for entry into further training programs, post-secondary programs, or to gain employment. The program includes upgrading in communications, math and computer skills.
