Get Into Hospitality @ CFN

Funded by the Prince's Trust, supported by RBC and KPMG, with Marriott Hotels as our employer partner, CFN is pleased to once again offer the Get Into Work Experience program. The program is geared towards youth ages 18 to 30 years old, experiencing barriers to enter the labour market, with no or limited work experience. It provides young people who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) with the opportunity to gain employability skills and Canadian work experience in the hospitality industry.

The Program, a part of CFN's Career Development and Job Search (CDJS) Services, consists of vocational and character skills training tailored to the sector and the demographics of the Participants; vocational qualifications - where applicable and relevant; work placement; a celebration event and three months follow-up support- to be given by the Collaborator to all program participants.

A cornerstone of CFN programming, the Centre offers CDJS services to provide support and guidance to reduce barriers, clarify career goals and develop training plans that will help job seekers move towards their employment goals. Clients are welcomed and work with career services professionals in English.  For newcomers with limited English, services are provided in multiple other languages. Workshops, information and networking sessions and one-to-one counselling are provided to prepare job seekers for the Canadian labour market, bringing them closer to employment opportunities that will help in their integration into the Canadian workforce. This past fiscal year tens of thousands have engaged our CDJS services here at CFN and we couldn't be happier to work towards building a diverse and inclusive Calgary.
