Meewasasin is accepting new clients! Not sure if it can help you? Here are some testimonials from recent clients:
“Meewasasin was an amazing experience. I’ve definitely learned a lot and would recommend the program to some people I know. I benefited a lot from this program. I’ve learned more about myself as a person, my parenting skills, spirituality and my culture. I’m very happy I had this experience and I will be using all the knowledge I’ve learned on a daily basis.”
“My experience here was very educational. I learned a lot here. The staff are kind and good people. I’ve learned so much from them already I wish it didn’t have to end so quickly.”
I’ve had a very excellent experience with this program the past four weeks. I love the very kind people I met at this program, I enjoy getting all my tickets and the support they help you with. I personally recommend anybody to join this program. I love the support that Jessica and Kari help us with. Thank you all very much.”
“I enjoyed the facilitator’s company and enhancing my workplace/life skills. I enjoyed the learning environment and people. Keep helping others.”
“My experience with Meewasasin has been great. Since the day I met Kari and Reona I felt welcomed. The amount of support I have received from Meewasasin has been amazing. The day I started here was the day my life changed for the better. The three of you ladies are awesome. The life skills I’ve learnt over the last 3 weeks I’ll take and use them to the best of my abilities. Thank you.”
“I love this Employment Skills program especially having Kari, Jessica, Reona as our skills trainers. They’ve helped me bring out my real inner self. Helped me go into (other programs) and get into (the) winter semester at SIIT … Taught me to be more assertive at school. You are awesome energy ♥”
“Meewasasin – Great learning experience, amazing, excellent, fun, cooperative.”
