“The 10 weeks were very interesting and useful. I got to know myself better and learned a few lessons about life. I have finished the program and I’m now more realistic, surer of myself, and better prepared to integrate the job market and society in general. After 10 weeks, I’ve learned that if you’re asked to participate, say yes. It’s a good idea, because it can open the door to new possibilities.”
The YWCA’s Employability Services aim to provide participants with tools and develop their knowledge and skills to support their social and professional integration, thereby breaking the spiral of exclusion, poverty, and social and gender inequalities. A team of professionals specialized in career counselling, training, employability, and psychosocial counselling accompany and guide them in their journey back to work or school.
