Union Counsellor Training Course

January 23, 2014

Initiated by the Canadian Labour Congress, the Labour Community Advocate Program has been offered by United Way in major Canadian cities since 1978. Graduates of the program offer guidance, referrals and information to co-workers about problems related to drug or alcohol abuse, gambling, housing, personal finance, and domestic violence.

Through the two-part training course, Labour Community Advocates learn about services and programs available in the Capital Region. They develop communication and interviewing skills. Then, if requested, they can refer co-workers to a community agency with professionals on staff who are trained to offer counselling or other assistance.

Level 1 training begins February 5. Please submit your expression of interest by 5 p.m. on Friday, January 31, 2014.
