    It can be difficult at times to see change as opportunity, but if you can, we can help you make a huge difference in how the next stage of your life can be with a vision for a new or improved career pathway! We contract with Inter-County Community Council, which has a staff of professional career counselors who can help you identify a direction and prepare for a plan that could include training or retraining.

     

    Scholarships

    We fund scholarships each year for youth (young adults under the age of 24) and adults to attend programs for in demand occupations at approved educational institutions.
     

    Dislocated Workers

    If you've lost a job because of company downsizing, buyouts or layoffs, your top priority is finding a new job.  If you are interested in pursuing a different occupation or are unsure what the next step in your career path might be, our trained, professional career counselors can work with you to develop a plan.

     

    Adults

    If you fall within income guidelines or are receiving public assistance, we can help you determine how to increase and market your skills to earn a higher wage.
