Faith

Short-term training has long-term benefits

Photograph of FaithFaith had finished high school but she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do next. She was living with her parents, didn’t have a car and was just getting by with a job in retail. That’s when she decided to take the Employability and Skills Training Course through the Cold Lake Native Friendship Entre-Youth Learning and Resource Centre. The course teaches work and life skills. Students also develop a one-year action plan to help them get where they’re going.

After completing the 10-week course and three-month work experience, Faith was able to secure a position with the City of Cold Lake, nearly double her income, move into her own apartment and buy a car. “The Employability and Skills Training course boosted my chances of better employment and enhanced my ability to save money.”

The Cold Lake Native Friendship Entre-Youth Learning and Resource Centre’s Employability and Skills Training Course is funded by the Government of Alberta.
