Employment, Education and Transition

Job Development and Maintenance

With funding provided by the Ministry of the Economy, Employment, Training and Immigration, the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living’s Employment, Education and Transition (EET) Facilitators work with individuals to find employment, connect individuals with supported employment agencies within their own community, meet with prospective employers, and ensure that resources and efforts be put in place to enable individuals to achieve success in the workforce.

Working with Students

Working with students continues to be a critical area for EET Facilitators. EET Facilitators work with students in the transition from high school to the workforce. This often means presenting to groups of students and parents, and talking about transition planning and what resources/opportunities exist. Sometimes it also means being part of a transition planning team meeting.

In our endeavor to support students, the SACL administers the Students with Disabilities component of the Student Employment Experience (SEE) Program. The SACL assists students with disabilities to secure employment by identifying and providing funding to eligible employers for training allowances, and funds disability-related supports deemed necessary to the student's employment.

Community Development

The EET staff are active on several committees that work toward community development support. As well, the SACL has undertaken a Transition Project that explores how to systemically enhance the transition process in the education system.
