Free training for those with multiple employment barriers

StreetWise Partners' free training program Career Ventures, designed for people facing multiple barriers to employment, is accepting applications for the fall 2012 session.

The three-month career development and mentoring program helps low-income individuals realize their career potential by delivering high-impact professional development services and providing one-to-one career mentoring by volunteer business professionals in corporate settings.   In Career Ventures, trainees identify their professional strengths and viable career options; understand and practice essential workplace skills; map and utilize an expanded employment network; hone interview skills and create a marketable resume; and build public speaking and office computer skills.   Mentors also provide individualized guidance and support as trainees set and execute against a career work plan.

Interested individuals can submit an application on the StreetWise Partners website.   Interviews will be held at the end of the month for programs starting in mid-September.
