Employment First North identifies barriers that Urban Aboriginal people face in attempting to secure employment.  
Through a collaborative measure including extensive  analysis, training and identifying  life skill  needs, individuals will be assessed  in a timely manner and begin the process of securing gainful employment.  Through the intake process, PRE-EMPLOYMENT participants will work closely with Ma-Mow-We-Tak Assessment officers, before transitioning to our Support coaches.   It is at this stage that identified barriers are addressed, ultimately ensuring the applicant has reached the point of becoming EMPLOYABLE.  Once the applicant is hired and becomes EMPLOYED they will transition to our Success Coach, who will provide ongoing support to ensure SUSTAINED EMPLOYMENT. 
 
 
Youth Win With Choices is designed to provide opportunities for youth to participate in a guided process which promotes personal development, independence, choices and employment and a variety of skills training.  Specified training enables youth to take responsibility and control of his/her life.  This project will work with Urban Aboriginal Youth ages 16-24, to enhance their capability to be self-reliant by shifting attitudes and values to promote lifelong labour force potential.
