Rebrand: Career & Employment Initiative for Young Adults

The Rebrand Skills Link program has flexible modules that directly address each individual’s barriers to employment. A holistic “balance” in programming includes: basic living skills, life management, problem-solving, career development through employment or educational planning, work exposure, intervention management and follow-up support. Case management focuses on Individual Action Plan (IAP) implementation to ensure young adults meet Program Objectives by addressing concerns/challenges systematically

The key objectives of the Rebrand program include:

  • A flexible holistic approach that provides young adults with basic life skills focusing on self esteem, confidence building, and soft skills needed for improving employment and educational potential.

  • Lifestyle management (food, shelter, clothing) to help young adults develop stable habits.

  • Enhance employability skills and assist in developing realistic and meaningful plans to reach employment/education goals and a long-term career path.

  • Connect young adults to workplace opportunities directly related to their identified career goals, correlated with current Edmonton Labour Market conditions.
  • Encourage leadership and employability skills; enable young adults to be responsible and actively make meaningful career and life decisions.

  • Provide links to relevant employers, community services, educational centers and resources.

  • Provide a comprehensive, one-stop information hub to explore and realize career, education, and/or employment objectives.

  • Provide in-depth exposure to areas of interest through interface with Edmonton industries that include information gathering interviews, tours and Work Exposure.

  • Develop and foster partnerships between young adults, public/private sectors, employers, industry, and educators to benefit career development.

  • Developing and fostering partnerships between youth, government, private sector, employers, industry, and educators to benefit the career development of youth.

  • Connect young adults to educational institutions to support back to school plans.
