Joshua is a committed and dedicated Youth who knew he wanted to secure a paid employment opportunity for himself. He has attended a variety of programs offered through CSCL’s Child & Youth Services Department (on and off) since 2008. Upon graduating from high school, during a pandemic no less, Josh enrolled in CSCL’s BRIDGE/BIG Service (Youth Supported Employment Service for Youth 15-24 years of age). A few short weeks, after connecting with BRIDGE/BIG, Josh had secured an interview at Walmart. With some support from his Vocational Counsellor, Josh participated in some one-to-one interview preparation workshops, and went on his way – he landed the job! Josh has now been employed for over 3 months at the local Walmart, and he continues to work part time so that he can attend the University of the Fraser Valley where he is working towards his educational goal of obtaining his Bachelor of Science Degree. Congratulations Josh on getting a great head start into adulthood!
