Time

IMG_1022

Prospect’s Staff often share the responsibilities of  leadership and planning with our clients to teach skills that transfer to the workplace. Time Management is a skill that we often work on, where participants create and follow timelines to ensure that trips return to Prospect on time. Participants have to pay attention to the time and weather so that they can complete the hike before a summer thunderstorm hits!

Fit for Employment

There are many benefits to being active and living a healthy lifestyle. Prospect’s clients often work at jobs that require physical fitness and strength. We promote living an active life and show how it can help make someone successful in the workplace. We would like to thank one of our amazing partners, YYC Cycle, for giving us the opportunity to explore the world of Spin. Check out the link to their website and give this great activity a whirl.

Flora

All of Prospect’s Outdoor Pursuits programs are designed to help individuals develop employment skills. Instead of sitting in a classroom all day, we explore many wilderness areas in Alberta. Using a variety of strategies to  identify flora in the mountains is a way to teach problem solving strategies and work on literacy skills. Participants are given the opportunity to use diagrams, dichotomous keys and a variety of memory tricks that enhance learning and understanding. We find the best way to teach skills is to engage people in their natural interests.
