Job readiness skills are provided to women in the community to gain self-confidence, basic but necessary job skills, in order to achieve economic self-sufficiency.
A critical skill is English language ability, which is taught by certified instructors in a classroom setting, as well as, in individual tutorial sessions. Another pertinent skill is computer training, taught by instructors that will nurture a student’s knowledge of basic MS Office software programs such as Word, Excel and Publisher, and general maintenance. Furthermore, job-readiness skills are incorporated into lessons. For example, basic interview skills are practiced during ESOL classes and how to create a resume in computer classes.
Finally, we offer free QuickBooks programming classes that will greatly give women an advantage to attain jobs in small or private businesses as a successful bookkeeper.
From time to time we conduct workshops on financial literacy and empowerment, and clerical skills. We also offer one-on-one consultations for those who are ready to seek employment. In-person and phone counseling are also available.
These classes not only provide a great opportunity to build skills towards becoming self-sufficient, but allows the women to make new friends and become equipped with life skills.
Please fill out the Self Sufficiency form if you are interested.
