If you haven’t noticed in the past few issues, the Distinctive Employment Counseling Services of Alberta (DECSA) is having a free pancake breakfast on July 9th, 2014 up in Edmonton. DECSA is a community based, non-profit organization that assists individuals with employment barriers to achieve paid employment. DECSA works collaboratively to overcome barriers to employment in a changing world. It seeks to be inclusive in all of its programs by accommodating both cognitive and physical disabilities and central to DECSA’s mandate is to accept and include people with disabilities.
The group also runs programs to help people with various challenges to start and maintain their own businesses, to help people who have been the victims of sexual exploitation, and to work with practicum students from colleges and universities around Edmonton. They are also open to placements from AU if any students are looking for help or opportunities.
The breakfast is free for all who can attend, and is being held on Wednesday, July 9th, 2014 from 7:30am to 10:30am at 11515-71 Street, Edmonton, AB. Breakfast includes pancakes, eggs, sausages, juice, and coffee, and there will be games and activities for the children.
