Community Living~Fort Erie has become a much sought after placement for students. They comment on our mission of inclusion and have chosen placements with us because of it!!
This past term we have placed six new students at different residential properties. Please join us in thanking the following students for their dedication to our organization over the past four months.
Placements provide the opportunity for students to be part of a team. This kind of experience is beneficial, and builds on self-management and problem solving skills as well as the ability to work collaboratively.
Students gain skills and knowledge, including ‘softer’ employability skills, specific technical skills and competencies. Placements give students the opportunity to gain skills specific to their career choice as well as the transferable skills required for real-life work. It also increases their knowledge of the Developmental Services Sector, allowing them to make better informed decisions about their futures.
Many students return as volunteers and we hire approximately 80% of our student placement population.
A special “THANK YOU” to our support staff who provide excellent supervision andexceptional guidance to these youth as they work towards their diplomas!
