people at the Revelstoke Community Skills Centre are offered by two

the Revelstoke Community Career Centre Society (RCCCS). RCSCS is
designated charitable and the RCCCS is non-profit and contracts and
services are delivered according to the mandate of each society. The

Currently the Revelstoke

Provincial Job Placement program,
Tami Murray, our Jobwave Placement Coordinator, works with Income
Assistance recipients to find employment. Part of Tamiís
responsibilities includes delivering six different Employability
Clinics to Jobwave clients. The Employability Clinics are excellent.
They have been developed by the West Coast Group, which works closely
with the BC Chamber of Commerce to identify skills which employers are
keen to see in their employees. The staff at the Skills Centre hopes
to soon be able to offer Employability Clinics to all people in
Revelstoke who wish to complete them.
