Two Central Alberta organizations have teamed up to try and help those who want to assist the most vulnerable citizens.
Non-Profit Agency Alberta Prairies Life Enrichment Training Studio (APLETS) has partnered with the Central Alberta Brain Injury Society (CABIS) to offer a life enrichment support program certificate course.
According to a release, the region is experiencing a crisis due to a lack of support workers for the “most vulnerable and disadvantaged citizens including our elderly/frail, individuals living with special needs, our citizens struggling with addictions, mental health, chronic medical health concerns.”
The Life Enrichment Support Worker Program 12-week certificate course was created specifically for individuals who are interested in and have a passion for starting a career as a support worker for our vulnerable and disadvantaged citizens.
The fall program is set to start on Dec. 1, limited spots are available. Financing is also available for students who require funding.
