Alberta Job Corps (AJC)
The Alberta Job Corps program provides structured, supportive training and work experience for individuals who have a sporadic employment history. The program gives participants the opportunity to work and earn a wage while learning reliable employment skills. Participants are hired by the Ministry and are paid minimum wage plus employer contributions. They work on projects for their local communities and non-profit organizations. The Alberta Job Corps program is designed to work in cooperation with employers, training providers, aboriginal groups, community organizations and schools.
The Alberta Job Corps program may include:
- employment development activities;
- training modules to develop employability and job skills;
- an equipped work environment with the rules, procedures and expectations of the workplace;
- incentives to become a “lead hand”;
- job coaching;
- work experience through AJC-supervised community work projects; and
- work experience opportunities with employers.
The AJC program is currently operating in northern Alberta, Calgary, Edmonton and Medicine Hat. Contact your nearest Alberta Works Centre or call the Career Information Hotline for more details.
