WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

Outreach, formerly known as the Employment Opportunity and Training Center, began as a workforce development agency. As community needs changed, our agency diversified to meet the changing needs of families. We continue to provide assistance to job seekers in multiple capacities.

L.E.A.D. CENTER

We have expanded and enhanced our workforce development program with our new L.E.A.D. (Lead, Educate and Develop) Center.

A new L.E.A.D. manager is making connections in the business community to create an "employment pipeline" for job seekers. There are plans for expanded job search hours, and anyone from the community can come in for interview training, resume preparation and job search and application via our computer bank.

L.E.A.D. welcomes anyone, especially men and women re-entering our community after incarceration. Our re-entry specialists can help you find gainful employment.
