Unique to the clubhouse model, Transitional Employment (TE) is a highly collaborative program that provides Clubhouse members with opportunities for paid employment. We believe that every person is capable and deserving of a job. Members work at a position for between 6-9 months, at which time another member is given the opportunity. Our members can work from as little as 2.5 hours per day to up to 20 hours per week. Often one full-time position is divided into morning and afternoon shifts to create two jobs.
Transitional Employment offers employers time and money saving incentives by:
Transitional Employment makes a difference in the lives of Clubhouse members by providing an opportunity to earn a pay cheque, contribute to the work force, feel like a valued member of our community, and, many times, set people on a path to full-time employment. Research shows that with employment, people experience a reduction in symptoms and hospital visits, improved quality of life, and increased self-esteem.
What the Employer provides:
Typical positions our members cover:

A Supported Employment (SE) job is an employment opportunity that is not time-limited. The position belongs to the member and there is a competitive element to the interview process. In SE, the clubhouse develops and maintains a relationship with the employer and assists with job-site development and sometimes training. SE jobs may be full- or part-time. The clubhouse does not provide coverage.
Independent Employment positions may be full- or part-time, and belong to the member, who has participated in a fully competitive interview process. The clubhouse does not commit to a formal relationship with the employer or provide absence coverage. The clubhouse assists with career development, job search, and job choices—should the member wish it.
The clubhouse has a relationship with the employer and the work and/or jobs are facilitated through the clubhouse. Group placements are distinguished from ‘special projects’ in that members commit to keep the group schedule. Members get support from the clubhouse both on- and off-site. As a defining characteristic, the clubhouse provides on-site staffing, allowing for the group’s productivity to be judged instead of the individuals.
