Jobs Skills Training Program Participants join a team for City beautification projects in a work-like environment, giving them valuable training and experience to help them to re-enter the workforce.  In addition, participants experience the reward of giving back to the community, very often getting recognized for their service.  Positive relationships are formed with co-participants and Crew Leaders which are built on trust, compassion, and mutual respect.  Classroom time is used for resume building, employment and training workshops, employment searches, and application follow-ups in an effort to improve their resume and job readiness with the ultimate goal of securing employment.  Participants are compensated for their time with a stipend.
