How we help Albertans
Prospect helps people get jobs. We’re a not-for-profit and registered charity, so while the bottom line can’t be ignored, it’s not our priority. You are.
We welcome anyone who is looking for a better life through employment. We work with candidates who have degrees; we also work with people who are homeless, or who have mental health issues. We can help upgrade your skills; we can also work with an employer to help them understand a disability. Above all, we’re creative and resourceful.
Recognizing that not everyone learns in the same way, our methods include art and the great Alberta outdoors as tools. We help young and old, people changing industries, recent immigrants, veterans, people with disabilities, and everyday Albertans who feel that the job search process has become daunting. If that sounds good to you, let’s get to work!
Are the robots really coming for your job?
Technology is a source of innovation, revolution, and freedom. It’s hard to imagine a life without social media, search engines, and YouTube cat videos.
Is perfectionism the biggest barrier to excellence?
Everyone knows a perfectionist – someone who looks at their work and focuses on the smallest flaw rather than the excellence of the whole. It’s a valuable trait when it comes to cutting diamonds, tightrope walking, or neurosurgery. But in day to day work, perfectionism can be a barrier.
Prospect's 2020 Annual Review
An extraordinary year resulted in our staff pulling together and exceeding expectations. Our brand values were put to the test, and we showed that Innovation, Collaboration, Enthusiasm, Professionalism, and Drive aren’t just words in our employee handbook. They are exemplified by our staff every day. You can access the 2020 Prospect Annual Review by clicking here
If you’re a results-oriented donor, Prospect is a great option. We help Albertans go from relying on society to helping build society. In 2020 we placed 582 people in jobs, reducing social services costs by approximately $10 million and returning almost $2 million to Alberta in tax dollars.
