Workforce Development Training Programs
Workforce development programs are intended to provide adults with training through the following opportunities.
Health Careers Opportunity Program
The Health Careers Opportunity Program is a three-year project funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration. The program trains economically and educationally disadvantaged adults to enter community health professions.
New Choices Career Development Program
With funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, the New Choices Career Development program emphasizes serious instruction for those who aspire to return to work.
Over five weeks, the training focuses on helping participants gain entry-level jobs in non-traditional fields, providing guidance and support as they move forward in their careers. Participants also
- earn some tuition toward post-secondary educational opportunities,
- engage in internships,
- have one-on-one career coaching sessions,
- learn personal effectiveness skills,
- participate in specialized workshops and
- receive career development services.
Participants also have access to job fairs, personal effectiveness classes and site visits to potential employers.
