Job Readiness Training (JRT)
The goal of our three-month Job Readiness Training is to equip, empower, and employ men and women impacted by incarceration. To help accomplish this goal, our workshop provides training in financial literacy, resume building, interview training, and life skills. After completion of the workshop, we assist with employment search and placement.
Participants that prefer an extensive guided model in conjunction with case management, the Job Readiness Training (JRT) employs evidence-based strategies recommended by the Department of Education through a cohort model. The JRT meet weekly for 12 weeks, four hours a week, and receive instruction from professionals in their field.
Topics covered include leadership skills, professional work ethics, financial literacy, teambuilding, interpersonal communication, and more. Additional modules of the JRT include creative writing, adaptability instruction, professional attire, and career exploration.
