Our employment and training programs are designed to help people develop their skill set and position them to be competitive for family-wage jobs. We have established fantastic relationships with local training providers and employers to provide our customers the tools and resources needed to achieve their career goals. Many participants have successfully found employment and have pursued higher education as a result of Vocational Training Programs. We offer services, workshops, one-on-one assistance, and host weekly job fair and hiring events.
