WorkPaths aims to change the trajectory of our communities by equipping workers with skills and knowledge to attain careers, retain employment and provide employers with ready to work talent.
It offers unemployed/underemployed adults intensive pre-employment training programs designed to increase functional skill levels—enhancing employability and/or enabling participants to continue with additional training or education toward a living-wage job.
Over 75% of graduates obtain employment or continue with further training leading to employment. After graduation, staff members work with program graduates to address any barriers to employment as well as work in an advocacy role to help them with the job search and placement, then stay in contact with the students and employers to monitor their progress and success.
