Building resiliency. Building access. Building, with you in mind.

Are you part of the LGBTQ2+ community and between the ages of 15-to-25 years old living in Nova Scotia?

Have you experienced barriers to accessing work and/or volunteer experience over the past 2 years?

We are looking for 15 people between 15 and 25 years old, living in Nova Scotia and identifying as LGBTQ2+ to take part in a brand new PILOT program this Fall. This accredited course requires 2 hours commitment per week (see FAQ below for details), virtually from within your own space.

We recognize the past two years have created many barriers for young people in gaining meaningful community connections through work and volunteer opportunities.

This course has been designed to empower you with the skills and confidence you need, and offers a certification to boot! Ideal for resumes and post-secondary applications.

  1. Build your job seekers portfolio: Cover letters, Resumes, Follow-up templates
  2. Interview Mastery Skills: Pre-interview research skills, preparation tools and presentation skills
  3. Tools to navigate corporate culture and understand your rights in the workplace

Register here to apply to be part of a 5 Week Work Skills Certificate Program designed to remove barriers and empower you with tools and skills for accessing meaningful work place and volunteer experiences.
