Makin’ it Work: Skills Development, a Job and Follow-Up
Published on 05/05/2009
Having proven its effectiveness during two pilot projects, “Makin’ it Work” continues to provide job seekers with hands-on experience, new skills and mentoring from local employers. The project leadership team is now reviewing ways to provide follow-up support people need to make a lasting transition to full-time employment. This project is similar to a job training initiative operating in Saint John, NB called “TIES 2 Work.” Vibrant Communities organizers in both cities have learned from one another’s efforts.
