Our First Program Success and Graduates from Fall 2016, Fall & Winter of 2017!
Focus Ability WorkAble Solutions would like to announce that we have completed our first three programs, two here in Salmon Arm and one in Kelowna! Fourteen participants took over 100 hours of assessment and training receiving a full report, MindMap, Individual Work Plan, and on-going job support. The majority of the people we have trained have found employment through us. Other participants are preparing for work and contracts in the technology and non-profit sectors.
We wish to recognize and thank the community businesses and support groups for helping to bring awareness and lend support to adults with special abilities to enter the work force.
Focus Ability places applicants into fields of employment after they complete the assessment and training program; additionally, Focus provides on and off site support through job coaches and an internal point of contact.
