Success 20

IMG-20120713-00579

Success 20 is a program that focuses on providing clients with the support and guidance that they may require in order to look for, and hopefully secure meaningful employment.

Much of the program relies on the use of computers to explore and navigate the existing opportunities in today’s job market. Althoguh clients may come to the program with the intention of being directed towards employment, we at reachAbility take the time to carefully screen each client to try and determine (with their help) what may be their strongest skills. We then try and match their skills with jobs that they not only find meaningful, but are more likely to remain sustained in. Emphasis is laid on finding a jobs that our clients would work in not because they sometimes have to, but because they want to, and will eventually grow to love those jobs, making short and long term employment a part of thier lives.

The process for landing a job can sometimes involve persistence and strong commitment which our clients may have. However, we at reachAbility through Success 20 work in a team to take the extra step and provide them with the often missing moral support. Also, workshops are strategically planned in detail to provide skills needed for building Resumes and Cover Letters. In addition, Mock Interviews are also a naturally occuring part of the program that help clients to self identify what they feel may be their own barriers when faced with a panel of employers who they wish to score a job with.

If you feel that you are ready to work and could use some more support while trying to find a meaningful job, feel free to get in touch with us.

Success 20 Participant Testimonials

I leave the program with something I haven’t had in a long time-hope. I’ve learned that I have a great deal to offer an employer and that I deserve to aim for more in life that simply a job to pay the bills.

Success 20 is the best course I have ever taken. It touches on very important issues in the work force today, such as self esteem, what employers are looking for, making an effective resume as well as goal setting and values within society. I think that this course will benefit any one who takes it, because I saw first hand the growth and progress I have made, as well as my peers.

Success 20 has been instrumental in giving me the confidence and tools to know myself worth and see my place as a productive member of society.  I am walking away more confident, and hopeful of my future than I had ever been in my life up to this point. This program is valuable beyond compare, as it provides an encouraging environment and I’ve never felt so valued and respected. I thank them for their time and effort, respect and encouragement.
