Preparing for Employment
Living-wage employment is the only way Bridges’ families can make it to self-sufficiency. To find, get, keep, and progress in a job takes know-how that people in the mainstream often take for granted. But many of our client families have to learn the process from the ground up – interpersonal workplace skills, defining individual job skills, finding job openings, applying, and all the rest. On the other hand, some clients come with good work experience but need to upgrade skills or learn new ones. We aim to meet clients where they are – and provide what they need for where they want to go: written and verbal communications, occupational assessment, job readiness, vocational training, career counseling, mentoring, and more.
