Vault provides a working environment and employs the young person for 30 hours a week. The supervisor up-skills, trains and mentors the employee with a strong emphasis on developing good work ethics and desirable work attitudes. In addition to this, an employee’s specific drawbacks and hurdles are discussed and plans on how to move forward are established. The mentoring relationship that our supervisor is able to build with the employee in this work environment is unique and is key to empowering the young person. Once prepared for the workplace the young person is assisted in securing further employment and the mentoring relationship continues for another year.
We want to ensure that no group of young people is overlooked and marginalized. As this programme equips the hard to employ, criminal activity and unemployment decrease creating safer and better communities.
