A Message From Our CEO


Futureworx Society was built on the foundation of helping people with complex circumstances “Realize their Potential“, The common thread in the stories of our clients we serve is that they all share the desire to realize their full potential at home, work and in community. The need for support often goes far beyond needing help to develop a good resume and cover letter. In working closely with our clients we uncover the real obstacles that affect their ability to enter and maintain employment.

The strategies we use that lead to meaningful employment are as varied as the people we serve. All strategic developments undertaken by the Society are conducted with great thought and consideration of our mission and mandate, our overall organizational growth management and our heartfelt passion to share our unique approach. Whenever possible, we want others to have access to our delivery model, assessment tools and curricula. Most importantly, we want to share our passion and drive for this important work!

CEO – Randy Lindsay
