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.


At Nova’s Ark, the positive rapport, smiles and comradery are evidence
that the students are learning valuable, transferable skills…
