Toronto Jail Employment Skills Program



Toronto Jail Employment Skills Program

Funded by the Ministry of the Attorney General and administered by the African Canadian Legal Clinic, the ACLC facilitates a Job Skills Employment Program in Toronto’s Don Jail. The program assists participants in some of the following critical areas for securing meaningful employment and ensuring successful reintegration back into society:

  • Changing thoughts and behaviours for success
  • Preparing a resume
  • Preparing for job interviews
  • Addressing a criminal record

Moreover, the Job Skills Workshop has been designed to explain to participants the importance of understanding and considering that IT IS NEVER TO LATE TO MAKE A POSITIVE CHANGE. In this, the African Canadian Legal Clinic Job Skills Workshop also aspires to reduce recidivism by providing inmates with job skills and resources aimed at successful re-integration back into the community.
