The Career Development Program is a three-week course that is designed to assist clients in focusing on careers and not survival jobs. In addition, it provides a foundation for them to make the transition from economic dependency to self-sufficiency.

Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of a job in the client’s career path and also on the importance of job tenure.
