Where do you learn to read as an adult?
What do you do if you’ve never had access to a computer?
How do you write a resume if you’ve been out of the workforce for ten years?
For our clients, the answers to all of these questions can be found through our in-house training programs and Learning Centre! Our clients have a wealth of knowledge, skills, and abilities and a strong desire to return to the workforce, but they often face barriers to employment. Harbour Light offers Skills Training: volunteer work experience, culinary skills training, and leadership experience to support their career development. Clients can also earn certifications in skills such as Food Safe, WHMIS, Occupational First Aid level 1, and non-violent crisis intervention.
Sometimes, formal education has been traumatizing or simply inaccessible to our clients. Through our Learning Centre, we offer opportunities for individuals to learn to love learning again! Clients are supported to achieve their goals in the areas of adult basic education, literacy, computer skills, job readiness, and critical thinking.
