The Supported Employment and Education Program (SEEP)

SEEP supports eligible clients of Alexandria CSB programs, including the West End Wellness Center and other programs,  who wish to pursue employment.

SEEP promotes occupational readiness through community-based job development, job try-outs, situational assessments, customized job placement training and job coaching.

Individuals are supported with finding satisfying and meaningful work that complements their personal strengths, goals and preferences. Individuals are taught how to utilize resources and develop job hunting skills while feeling confident in their ability to obtain and maintain employment in the community.

For those wishing to pursue education, the unit supports individuals with enrollment, exploring funding sources, study and organization skills, and advocacy for accommodations.
