Second Chance

Each Job Readiness Training cohort offers a healthy mixture of activities with an emphasis on individual accountability. Participants engage in 160 hours of intensive instruction, during which they break down personal barriers to employment, obtain new job skills, develop résumés, and practice interviewing techniques.  While classroom exercises mainly occur in a group setting to nurture teamwork and interpersonal skills, Adult Workforce staff meet one-on-one with each participant throughout the four weeks to map out potential career pathways, provide résumé critiques, or offer moral support.
