Derek (the smiling one in the middle) suffered from low self-confidence for years due to struggles with literacy and numeracy.
After completing our TAKE THE STEP program, Derek started working at Contraflow as a Traffic controller.
Our Indigenous mentor, Bianca, guided Derek through his pre-employment program.
With a little bit of assistance, he successfully went through the whole training. Straight after completing it, Derek was placed into employment!
“I got my confidence and self-worth back! I love my job and I’m very proud that I can support my family in a way I thought I never could.”Derek
