OCWI partnered with the Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF) to deliver and test In Motion & Momentum at three employment services sites in Eastern Ontario (KEYS Job Centre in Gananoque, CSE Consulting in Prescott, and the Employment and Education Centre in Brockville). Facilitators at each site received training from the CCDF to deliver the program. In Motion, the first module, is a series of workshops that provide opportunities for participants to reflect and build upon their assets, experience connection and success, and enhance their confidence and sense of personal control. Momentum, the second module, builds upon these themes using an action-oriented learning approach that supports participants to jointly develop and implement a
project that addresses a need of the group or a need in the community. The objectives of the program are to help participants build essential skills while also enhancing their motivation, resilience, and optimism towards the future. The program was originally designed and implemented in New Brunswick to support income assistance clients requiring additional pre-employment supports.
