Purpose & Objective
The main purpose of the Employment Skills Workshop is to introduce an array of concepts to YES clients that are fundamental when searching for and securing employment opportunities.

The main objective for the Employment Skills Workshop Facilitator volunteer is to facilitate an engaging workshop for our clients to help expedite their pathways to success.

D escription
