Through partnership with Skills PEI, the employment unit at Fitzroy Clubhouse, is able to offer Employment Assistance Services for Supported Employment, Independent Employment, and Transitional Employment Placements.
We work with members to achieve their employment goals through job searching, one-on-one career decision-making, job preparation skills, and pre-vocational training. We are here to advocate to employers on behalf of members entering or re-entering the workforce.
Our day-to-day consists of staff and members working together in the unit completing work order day tasks, facilitating weekly meetings, providing individual supports, and monthly employment skills sessions.
What We Offer
Transitional Employment Program
Transitional Employment (TE) provides members part-time temporary employment in the community, using real work experience and skills while allowing members to increase self-esteem and confidence.
We work actively to promote member strengths with potential employers. We build strong relationships with new employers and offer support with access to wage subsidies & training, and employment maintenance for both members and employers.
For members seeking independent employment we offer one-on-one support, group support, goal setting, career counseling, marketing and skill development, preparation for work and more!
We provide one-on-one support, which includes job searching & interview prep, ongoing job coaching, employment maintenance, career counseling, help with education or school, and whatever else you may need assistance with!
Members and staff work together daily completing tasks in the unit such as weekly meetings, keeping up the resource area, helping create schedules, finding jobs of the week, employment statistics, TEP payroll and running the reception desk.
