Skills for Success - Strathmore

The Skills for Success Program helps unemployed or underemployed Albertans from the greater Strathmore area improve their skills in the following areas:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Numeracy
  • Digital
  • Problem-solving
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Adaptability
  • Creativity
  • Innovation

Using art-based learning, participants engage in structured lessons to learn the Skills for Success and to move closer to the work force.

The program includes 5 weeks of skill-building in the classroom, followed by 7 weeks of applying the new skills to develop public art projects in the Strathmore community. Working on a public art project allows participants to build their community networks and further their employability skills while receiving career advising and employment support from Prospect.

A new group of participants begins every 12 weeks. Scheduling is flexible and modified to meet the needs of participants within each group.


For more information, please contact the Skills for Success Team Lead, Shantelle Vermeylen directly at 403-463-2680.
