Employment and Adult Education

We connect community members with meaningful employment at livable wages and training opportunities to support their career advancement. Career Specialists help set goals and viable steps to achieve them. We also team up with local community colleges and other partners to connect individuals to vocational training, internship programs, and help with job placement. Our citizenship and English language classes provide pathways to future opportunities for immigrants and refugees.
