New jobs and education program to facilitate the connection between job readiness and employment - Spring 2013

The Gathering Place

In a post-recession economy, finding a job is often a difficult—not to mention stressful—task. Though we have long offered GED tutoring at The Gathering Place and pay for the GED tests our students take, the new employment realities highlighted a gap in our services: a direct connection to job training and readiness programming.

 

Along with other programs at The Gathering Place, the new job readiness programming will help members to become more independent. “I think this is going to help move people towards self-sufficiency, in a way that is very ‘Gathering Place,’” says Meyer. “It is going to allow people to lead their own lives, but to also take advantage of the resources and the relationships that work for them at the time, and to be able to continually move forward.”
