Work Experience (Secondary Schools)

This program is geared to groups and/or individuals with varied abilities who require Work Experience in order to develop the skills to take them from a classroom or workshop environment to meaningful work in the community. Nova's Ark provides a safe and diverse environment where each participant can focus on social and communication skills while making a real contribution.  There are many opportunities to learn together and to share social experiences by being involved in outdoor activities such as: fence and enclosure painting, mucking stalls, sorting vegetables, shoveling woodchips and gravel, gardening, grooming and socializing with the animals.
