Helping others with their struggles

Photograph of DamienDamien moved to the High Prairie area in March 2013 with no supports and no employment history other than four months at the Alberta Job Corps in 2004.

Damien was working towards finding employment while staying at Mitaa Aftercare after being released from incarceration.

He was referred to the Employment Readiness program through the local Alberta Works Centre. Prior to completing the program Damien was offered employment at the Mitaa Centre in High Prairie. To date he continues to be employed at the Mitaa Centre as an Institutional Aide and began training to be an Addictions Services Worker, offered through the Nechi Institute in St. Albert. He will complete the program at the end of April 2014.

Damien has referred other individuals with similar struggles to the Alberta Works Centre for help with finding and maintaining employment.
