Job Options features 4 weeks of classroom-based learning focusing on job search skills, employment skills and life skills development. During this time, participants will also receive a variety of specific training and certifications required to meet their career goals.
Support for transitioning to employment will also be provided. By offering a training stipend of $250/week for four weeks, and funding for transportation, work clothes and equipment we aim to help make it easier to succeed.
The best part of Job Options is just like the name says: Options. Following the program, you will be connected with employers, volunteer opportunities or work experience.
