Job and employment issues are particularly crucial for the population of former drug users who want to reintegrate. Due to the economic crisis, given that unemployment rates are on the rise, career guidance and job support are areas in which vulnerable groups of drug users and former drug users, need special care and support.
In this context, it was considered necessary to create a separate structure within the KETHEA DIAVASI therapeutic program. It is a "place" where members of the therapeutic program have the opportunity to look for a job in an organized way, to edit their CV, to write a cover letter, to prepare for the interview and to be trained in looking for a job.
The Employment Club operates from morning until noon, providing logistical infrastructure (eg newspapers, computers, etc.) and above all advising and supporting members to seek employment opportunities and to deal with and manage with the best possible way, the difficulties that may arise.
More specifically, the staff of the Employment Club supports its members in career guidance and professional identity development, job preparation, job searching techniques, job searching support, information on job and career days, professional counseling, problem management and workplace problems (through individual and group meetings), vocational courses, stabilization and development of members of the therapeutic program in the workplace.
