This program is a supported work program operated by Community Living Mississauga, and is available to all teens from the ages of 16 up to and including the summer of their graduating year. The Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP) will locate supported work for participants, on a paid or unpaid basis, as much as possible in a setting consistent with their career choices. Participants do not need to be job ready, and in many cases may perform part of a job, or work at a rate that is less than competitive. The focus of the program is on work experience, opportunities for inclusion, and tasks that develop work-related skills and increase independence.
