A relationship made to help Golden learn

CBAL will be working closely with CMHA, the new lead contractor for Work BC Employment Services in Golden.

The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) will be working closely with the Canadian Mental Health Association Kootenays (CMHA), the new lead contractor for Work BC Employment Services in Golden.

The CMHA is providing provincial employment services and has contracted CBAL to provide literacy and learning services to clients.

Monica De, the CBAL community literacy co-ordinator, said this was a great way to help people in Golden.

“On Mondays from 1-4 p.m. there is a tutor at the Work BC office who helps people with resumes, cover letters, online job searches and more,” she said. “What we are going to do is on every second Monday of the month we are going to have a free job skills workshop at the Work BC office at 1 p.m. starting on Dec. 10.”

The workshop is free and will run from one to two hours.

De explained that the group is also open for residents to make requests for different types of workshops at the Work BC office on 9th Avenue North in Golden.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the services offered call the Work BC office at 250-344-5413 or you can also call De at 250-439-9665.
