CAREER LINK | HOW IT WORKS
Career Link is a 6 month program designed to connect TANF participants with an employment opportunity while understanding the key to lasting self-sufficiency is a foundation in education.
Career Link staff meet with each participant and create a personalized plan to assist them in finding a work site in their local community that aligns with their career goals and then enables them with job-readiness training as needed to prepare them for employment.
This is a full time program combining 20 hours per week of paid employment with 20 hours a week working on skills to obtain a high school equivalency, college credit, other educational opportunities as well as working to resolve challenges that stand between you and a full time job.
Participants with steady employment gain confidence in themselves, have the opportunity to earn income and learn new skills to make them a more employable individual.
This program is the first step for many in their journey towards self-sufficiency. Each employer, after seeing the participant’s potential, has the opportunity to hire them on as part of their team.
The Career Link program not only builds work-related experience and boosts your resume but it often proves to be a valuable networking opportunity too!
