Too often, the most vulnerable in our society lack access to job training programs that allow them to secure work, build confidence, and stay employed. At The RE Store, we’re working to build a more confident, educated, and healthy community through Community Jobs Training.
Building a confident, employed community
Community Jobs Training provides one-on-one job training opportunities to participants of local job-training programs. By partnering with various social justice organizations in the region, we’re able to to ensure that job-training opportunities are accessible to all. Trainees that participate in Community Jobs Training gain important skills and connections that follow them after their program completion.
During their 3-month or 6-month program, trainees receive job assessments, help with their resumes, compassionate performance evaluation, and safety training. Our extensive curriculum focuses on soft and hard skills; including customer service, retail sales, administrative, marketing & communications, salvage & deconstruction, and woodworking. We work closely with our partners to build custom one-on-one coaching curricula tailored to the interests and skill-sets of each trainee. To learn more about the organizations we work with, visit our partnerships page.
We work with trainees from all walks of life: retirees, single parents re-entering the workforce, youth entering the workforce for the first time, students earning service learning credit, international (ESL) students, adults with disabilities, people recovering from injuries, soldiers transitioning from active duty, people transitioning from incarceration and more. These people are our neighbors, our community members, and our friends. We may help them obtain the skills they need, but it is their character and determination that drives their success.
Give a gift, build hope
Our job training program has proven results. With their newly acquired skills and confidence, nearly all of our graduated trainees find full time, stable employment. Community Jobs Training is primary funded by generous donors like you. With your help, we can provide valuable job training experiences to even more community members.
