This past week, we had an amazing group of students from the University of Alberta come in to help us out in Edmonton.

Not only did they help us do a few upgrades, but they took part in an info session to learn more about the work that we do and take a tour around the facility.

We cannot thank them enough for their time, and can't wait to have them back!

Everyone could use a bit of good news, and we wanted to share some Good News stories from our Employment Program!

A Person Accessing Service has facilitated their second D&D Gamification workshop at Chrysalis. They have been responsible for creating a journey for fellow peers to go on a quest with characters they have created, keeping track of the different characters' hit points and armour class as well as all of the enemies in the story. A fun adventure for all!

Logan and Dean have been busy at their new job, training as a Day Porter to help keep a school clean. They have learned new skills and enjoyed being in a new environment and meeting new people.

Jordan quickly took on his new job duties at a crane company, collecting garbage and recycling. Jordan is very safety conscious around the building.

A Person Accessing Service is “having a blast” learning the different types of kits to assemble while working at a garage door parts company.

Dylan accepted a permanent part-time position from a relief position, while Marcelo has taken on the relief position while being employed at an electricity company.

Victoria has taken a closer step to finding her dream job! Victoria is volunteering as a Greeter/Way Finder, helping people find their way around a busy hospital. Victoria took the initiative to find the position and complete the orientation sessions by herself. Her supervisor is thrilled with Victoria’s enthusiasm and positive attitude.

Skylin continues to keep himself busy, working at the front of the store as an Associate at a big box store, assisting customers with items to their vehicle, picking up carts and helping with other job duties as needed. Skylin maintains his other position, changing and preparing the arena for different events that take place.
