Our goal is to get our trainees to work! You can help us by working with local employers to schedule work-site visits for our workshops, developing opportunities for employment and/or paid internships, and working with employers to get copies to training manuals/training videos to use for vocational training in our workshops. 


You can also help us by getting donations for our workshops so that our trainees get a chance to use real workplace tools and materials to train for real jobs with our local employers!
