Student Options

Summer Work Experience Program

Eastman Employment Services offers a Summer Work Experience Program, which is designed to provide opportunities for high school students (ages 16-21) living with disabilities to find or continue work experience over the summer months.

This program allows students to gain additional skills and experience to enhance their resumes, try new work experiences, and in some cases, earn some money. This program also allows for students to experience some of the services provided by Eastman Employment Services prior to leaving school and accessing our services as adults.

The Stride Project

The Stride Project began in 2018 after Eastman Employment Services received a grant from Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries to run a 2 year pilot project. This program aims to equip young adults with the skills and confidence needed to excel in their lives and in the workplace by providing each student with 3 internships, assisting with life skill development and organizing community involvement over the course of one school year.
