The Survive, Alive and Strive - Employment (SAS-e) program is a skills link employability program designed for Surrey young people (16 to 26 years old), who want to learn about securing sustainable employment.

SAS-e is delivered in two components:

1)    Facilitated Group Training (4 weeks)

The first component of the program focuses on skills development training. Training is expertly guided in a small group setting by a Job Facilitator, with an extensive background in employment skills development.

Participants have the opportunity to complete pertinent certification that will support their employment goals, i.e., FoodSafe, Serving It Right, First Aid, Forklift Operator, driving skills, etc.  

Participants with regular attendance receive living allowances, transportation support and a program completion incentive.

2)    Work Experience (12-15 weeks)  

Following completion of the Facilitated Group Training, participants begin the work experience component of the program. This phase is 12-15 weeks of work experience in the field of choice, supported with employment coaching by a Job Developer. 

Participants with regular attendance who complete the work experience component also receive an incentive.
