Under the guidance of staff and a dedicated team of volunteers, we provide the tools, resources and skill sets necessary for an individual to remove the barriers preventing them from finding work in the competitive job market, and to maintain stable employment.
The Learning Center Program offers the following:
In correlation with the Learning Center Program, each client is also provided with financial literacy training that advocates the fundamentals of good financial stewardship. This teaches students to build a budget, resolve debt, avoid credit card misuse, start savings and checking accounts, and create a long-term financial plan.
