Work Ready Initiative
In these times of high unemployment our second initiative WorkReady™ will assist in addressing the skills needed to secure employment. The WorkReady™ curriculum addresses seven basic standards including personal motivations and challenges to employment, effective communication and interpersonal skills, understanding taxes and benefits, job searching, and resume and portfolio preparation. The 60 hour soft skills and 20 computer based training is designed to provide successful participants with not only skills essential in today’s workplace, but also a portable credential. The WorkReady™ Credential is endorsed by businesses throughout the state.
If you are interested in helping to support either of these initiatives through providing educational materials, unused office materials, volunteer tutors, assisting with mock interviews, or monetary donations to help sustain our programs, please contact Steve Vose at 685-4923 x1009.
