Program Helps Job Seekers Get "Ready for Work," Advance in Their Careers
A program offered by SEVCA helps unemployed individuals and those with little work experience gain marketable skills, obtain jobs, and advance in their careers.
"Ready for Work" was developed by the Windham Workforce Investment Board (WWIB, now known as WorkNet), in partnership with SEVCA and CCV, with a Regional Workforce Partnership Grant from the Vermont Department of Labor, to address the mutual workforce needs of both employers and disadvantaged workers in the state of Vermont. Grant funding from the U.S. Department of Labor helped to launch the course.
The program is offered in partnership with various organizations, most recently Tapestry, a program of the Phoenix House, and the state of Vermont's Economic Services Division. For more information, contact Denise Mason, Director of Economic Development at SEVCA at 802-722-4575 ext. 150.
