Employment Readiness

The goal of the Future is Yours program is to provide youth between the ages of 15-24 with skills, training and volunteer experiences to gain employment. Through weekly workshops, participants learn how to write their resume, acquire various certifications and gain valuable volunteer experience. The program is also designed for youth to gain employment with the City of Winnipeg’s Recreation Department for summer employment as well as Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata’s summer green team.

Future Is Yours also focuses on self growth and goal setting, through workshops such as suicide awareness and prevention, healthy relationships, community awareness and personal empowerment.  The program is designed for youth to better understand the community and the labour market, develop leadership skills, self esteem and confidence.
