Partnering with community organizations our team in North America strategize, create and implement sustainable programs that will impact future generations. Examples of this approach in action are the Workforce Resource Guide and the Scholarship Program.
WORKFORCE RESOURCE GUIDE
The Workforce Resource Guide provides a road map for job seekers to get from point A to point B. The step by step guide helps individuals choose a career, acquire training, certifications and basic life skills, prepare a resume, sharpen interview skills and ultimately land a job. To date, the resource guide has been downloaded 15,000 times.
The Scholarship Program targets the unemployed and under-educated population. Scholarship recipients receive support from a professional career counselor, guidance from a trained mentor and get connected to community resources. More than 275 scholarships have been awarded to recipients in Southwest Louisiana.
Our main community partners are the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana who implement the scholarship program and the Economic Development Alliance of Southwest Louisiana who are instrumental to the resource guide. Our other partners are mentioned in the resource guide and on our fact sheet. You can read more about these programs and partners here.
Through the holistic approach of funding, training, coaching and support, these initiatives ensure long-term success for participants.
