A local non-profit is working on a new program that will help workers find good jobs.
Community Action is working on a new career ready program titled Strengthening Working Families. Executive director Alison Rumler-Gomez indicates the program is working to bridge the gap between the needs of the community and the needs of local employers.
The Strengthening Working Families program is an extension of the already existing Jobs for Life Program. Rumler-Gomez says Jobs for Life teaches disciplines and financial literacy associated with being an employee.
In addition to Jobs for Life, Community Action's Career Pathways is a part of the Strengthening Working Families program. Rumler-Gomez explains that is not well known but helps to establish workers in fields of need.
To get the program going, Community Action is seeking out funding from local entities. They do not have a firm start date established.
