This program, through North Shore Disability Resource Centre, is designed for individuals with disabilities who want to improve academic, work and life skills and will transition out of the service within 1-4 years to access other educational or employment related services and opportunities. This service is best suited to those who wish to further their independence through community-based activities and do not require one to one assistance.
STAGE offers a varied schedule based on the goals of the participants:
Functional academics (Smart Readers, Math 2 Go, Money Skills )
Skill development (bus skills, office skills, basic computer skills)
Work skill training through community volunteering
Employment exploration through Informational interviews and tours with local businesses and services
To apply to the STAGE Program you must first call Community Living British Columbia (CLBC) at 604.981.0321 and speak to a Facilitator. The Facilitator will assist you with developing a plan and if appropriate will make a referral to the program on your behalf
