Workforce Participation Program Graduation!

A group of students gathered for 12-weeks to participate in the Communities United Workforce Participation Program! They learnt a variety of skills to better equip them for the workplace culture in Canada, and prepare them for a successful career in their future.

Every student who registered in the program graduated and received their certificate. Andrea from Action For Healthy Communities lead the program. She worked with the students of the program to create individual plans for their future careers based off of the information they had gained in the course!
