Workforce Development Program

This program begins with a 14-week in-class training program, where workers develop the skills and attitudes required to be a successful team member at your workplace.

Our workers come out of training ready for long-term employment with supportive local businesses.


Why Hire Workforce Development Workers?

So far H.C’s been a treat to have around. We’re slowly acclimating him to construction (7:00 start comes pretty early in the morning when you’re not used to it), but there’s no signs of him being unable or unwilling to get there. He’s been ambitious & curious, both of which are excellent qualities in persons we would like to keep for the long haul; and he’s learning/adjusting from said curiosities, which is fantastic to see as well.
