The Role:
  • Reporting to the CCRW Supervisor: Youth the Future Program, the CCRW YTF EF holds the unique responsibility to work as a team of three, to effectively recruit employers and ensure appropriate employment positions for cohorts of young people living with diverse Disabilities, during which time both Employment Facilitators deliver an 8 week pre-employment curriculum (virtual and in-person) in a highly interactive, accessible manner.
  • The EF is able to transition seamlessly from an education to sales/recruitment setting and work effectively in a very small team to equitably share responsibilities, updates related to participant case management, and resolve conflict using the support of YTF Supervisor and/or Manager where necessary.
  • The EF works as part of a team to identify and develop individualized employment and accommodations plans, as well as appropriate crisis interventions when needed. This position works collaboratively with team members regarding potential employment matches, training opportunities and acts as a support when employment matches are identified to ensure a successful transition.
