The OWL Project is an 8 week employment readiness program designed specifically to assist the mature worker return to work. If you are job ready, between the ages of 55-64, experiencing difficulty in finding work, genuinely seeking employment, and willing to work in a dynamic group setting, this program is for you. Of course you will need a referral from your employment counsellor or case manager in order to be accepted into the OWL Project.
It runs thoughout the entire year.
Classroom Hours: Monday - Friday from 8:30 - 4:30 pm
Without hesitation I can easily say the OWL Project (sponsored by People Plus Consulting Limited) was one of the best experiences of my life, with a great syllabus in place, dedicated facilitators, comfortable environment and opportunity to develop wonderful new friendships. Such things as classroom attendance, homework assignments and interactive discussions certainly complemented the overall objectives and mission of this unique program.
I graduated on October 11, 2013 and was able to create an extensive portfolio during the 8 weeks. It has allowed me a great opportunity to delve into all areas of my life. Evidence of interests and accomplishments, on professional and personal levels, have been well documented. What a wonderful resource tool it has been for job applications and interview preparation.
Such a tragedy it would be if the OWL Projectwas shut down. For it would be a grave dis-service to Judy McKay, Chris Rankin, Katherine Scott, Job Junction personnel, and other persons involved who gave of their valuable time, expertise, and dedication to this worthwhile cause - the unemployed older worker.
Without the OWL Project, each individual would continue to be overlooked in a sea of those searching for suitable employment. The mature worker brings wisdom, reliability and integrity to the workplace scenerio. A detrimental effect would snowball within many families who have been ignored and neglected for too long.
I urge you to continue the OWL Project and I am confident you will make the wise choice of providing funding and support. The foundation for a postive change within the labour force would be enormous.
