Pre-Employment Women's and Men's Groups

The Women INC (Imagining New Careers) program and Doorways: Trauma-Informed Pre-Employment Program for Men are available for those who struggle to gain employment and/or meaningful community involvement due to their experiences of past trauma and other circumstances that have left them on the margins of today’s labour market.

Through group-based personal development activities, individual reflection, career assessments, and community presenters, participants in these Pre-Employment group programs identify strengths, build self-confidence, develop job-ready skills, and acquire the necessary techniques for an effective job search in the 21st century.

Programs are free of charge to participants and offer childcare and transportation subsidies.

Funded and co-delivered by Kootenay Career Development Society (KCDS) which services both Nelson and Castlegar and which receives its mandate from the Province’s Employment Program of BC.

For inquiries about group start dates, call either Nelson Community Services or KCDS (250-352-6200 or 1-877-952-6200).
