Launch + Skills Spotlight on Chantel

I got an awesome apartment with a high-end job thanks to this program!

Every goal I have made has been easy enough to accomplish.”

Chantel started the Launch + Skills program in April of 2018 and is currently going through a recharge. When she first entered the program, her goals were around exploring potential work experiences and building skills for time and money management. Chantel has been able to accomplish every goal she has set for herself by ensuring that she consistently scheduled and followed through on appointments with her skills coach, and a sincere commitment to engage in the Launch + Skills program as much as she possibly could.

“The skills coaches are really nice and easy to get along with.”

Through the Launch + Skills program, Chantel has secured employment at the Calgary Hyatt Regency Hotel, managed her schedule in a way that has allowed her to remain successful in her part-time studies at Mount Royal University, and she lives independently in her own apartment. Chantel’s goals for her recharge of the program are to focus more on household management and job maintenance, and she has already experienced noticeable improvements and growth in both areas.

“I’m not sure what’s next for me, but I am looking forward to it.  I would recommend that others with similar circumstances join Launch + Skills!”

We have been so fortunate to have Chantel as a part of our program and could not be more proud of her. Excellent work Chantel.

A few other Launch + Skills reported successes that we want to give a shout-out to include:

  • Daniel is now working full-time.
  • Gary has started looking for part-time employment.
  • Richard has an interview.
  • Chris has started his new job and is enjoying it.

We thank Chantel and all who have shared their stories, and commend each Launch + Skills participant as they continue to make progress towards their individual goals.
