The objective of the TRI-Rock Program is to assist youth who are facing employment barriers to prepare for, obtain and maintain employment. TRI-Rock is a 16-week, full-time, paid employment training program for people aged 18—30. It is split into two 8-week phases. Phase 1 is at the Living Rock. Youth are provided with hands-on employment experience, as well as training and tools related to employment skills and life skills, such as educational planning with ABEA, First Aid, Safe Food Handling and Police Checks. Phase 2 is a subsidized job placement in the community.
Placement employers have the option of hiring on TRI-Rock participants after the 8 week placement is complete. There is a graduation with a completion bonus and Rock Certificate and a certificate from David Christopherson, member of Parliament from Hamilton Centre.
