Aboriginal Directions is a non-incorporated organization consisting of Aboriginal people living in the area. The primary goal of this organization is to oversee the delivery of Employment Outreach Services directed toward the successful integration of Aboriginal People into the workforce. The goal of this project is to identify and serve Aboriginal people in need of employment-related services living in the target area. Centred in Saint John, the services will extend to Sussex in the east and Welford in the west.
Services offered by Aboriginal Directions include:
* Assessment of skills and needs in relation to employment, educational and training requirements, career changes, interview skills, résumé writing and effective job-search techniques.

* Career Paths, a comprehensive program focusing on career planning, goal setting and skills development.

* Information on government and community programs and services, as well as local job market requirements.

CENTRE DE BÉNÉVOLAT DE LA PÉNINSULE ACADIENNE
111 Blv St-Pierre Ouest Tel.: (506) 727-1860
C.P. 397 Fax: (506) 727-1862
Caraquet, New Brunswick
E0B 1K3

Grâce à des contrats de service avec les gouvernements provincial et fédéral, ce centre gère de nombreux programmes et offre plusieurs services sociaux dans la péninsule acadienne. Ce faisant, en plus de créer des emplois, il sert d'endroit de formation aux personnnes désireuses de retourner sur le marché du travail.

Une des particularités de l'organisme est le lien entre les services des secteurs "privés" et bénévoles et les services sociaux gouvernementaux. L'utilisation du contrat de services, dans un contexte de privatisation, est l'option privilégiée. Comme dans beaucoup de centres communautaires, le développement du Centre de bénévolat est dü en grande partie au dynamisme du coordonnateur.

Through service contracts made with the provincial and federal governments, this Centre operates a number of programs and provides social services in the Acadian Peninsula. In so doing, in addition to creating jobs, the Centre serves as a training location for those wishing to return to the labour market.

One distinguishing feature of the organization is the link between the "private" and volunteer formula, and government services. The use of service contracts, in the context of privatization, is the preferred option. As with many community centres, the Centre's development is due to a great extent to the dynamic nature of the coordinator.

ELM HILL COMMUNITY CENTRE
Elm Hill Road Tel.: (506) 488-2688
R.R.#1, Elm Hill, New Brunswick
E0G 1V0

Elm Hill, a prosperous rural Black community at the time of the Loyalists, is now one of the poorest communities in New Brunswick. Its isolation, a source of strength in the 19th century, has become one of the reasons for its marginalization. Over the past few years, resident families in the area, supported by a group of community workers (nurse, social worker, member of the clergy, community organizer, and a representative from the New Brunswick Housing Services) have been working in close cooperation to help the community regain its cohesion and its pride. This has been accomplished through an unfailing respect for the decisions of the community, which is gradually taking charge through housing and community garden projects, and has renovated its community centre.

Solidarity among workers and the community, mutual trust, and especially the key role played by a community worker have succeeded in creating a dynamic process in this isolated community. From this project has sprung a model of cooperation between workers and the community, based on the resourcefulness of people, rather than on their problems.
