Restaurant Employment and Training Program
One of the pillars of FABARNAK's social enterprise model is a structured, 1-year training and employment program for members of our communities who have faced barriers to employment. Through this program, participants are employed for a one-year period and receive training and on-the-job experience within an intentional and structured environment. While some of our participants chose to continue in a career in food service and hospitality, many of our partiticipants transition to school or other careers, using their year at FABARNAK as a launching pad for continued success.
FABARNAK's program defines 'barriers to employment' broadly. Previous program participants have included trans youth undergoing a gender transition, newcomers to Canada with limited Canadian work experience and young people in recovery from addiction.
