First week at Job Path

The first week of Community Living North Bay’s new Job Path program is in the books and what a week it was.

In only the first week this group has gotten to know their peers, facilitators, and hopefully themselves a little better.

They also and had a chance to explore and give back to their community. The group put in a hard day’s work volunteering at North Bay’s own Gathering Gardens. They worked in small groups, had specific directions to follow all while managing their time and staying on task.

Great job guys. Stay tuned for next week when this group volunteers at Community Living North Bay’s very own Early Years Centre.
