JP Bickell Foundation Awards Grant to Support JOBWORX Summer Student Employment Program
Community Living Chatham-Kent has been awarded a $3,500 grant from the JP Bickell Foundation to support the 2015 JOBWORX Summer Student Employment Program.
This program enables young adults who have an intellectual disability the opportunity to visibly participate within the community and develop transferable work skills building increased self-confidence to enter the workplace once they have completed their schooling. Participants equally benefit through developing leadership, fulfilling responsibilities, organizing tasks, and finally, forming lasting, positive, friendships.
We are very grateful to the JP Bickell Foundation for their support!
