Too often, the most vulnerable in our society lack access to job training programs that allow them to secure work, build confidence, and stay employed. At The RE Store, we’re working to build a more confident, educated, and healthy community through vocational training.
Working to empower our community through one-on-one training
Community Jobs Training provides one-on-one vocational training opportunities to participants of local job-training programs. By partnering with various social justice organizations in the region, we’re able to to ensure that job-training opportunities are accessible to all. Trainees that participate in Community Jobs Training gain important skills and connections that follow them after their program completion.
During their 3-month or 6-month program, trainees receive job assessments, help with their resumes, compassionate performance evaluation, and safety training. Our extensive vocational training focuses on soft and hard skills; including customer service, retail sales, administrative, marketing & communications, salvage & deconstruction, and woodworking. We work closely with our partners to build custom one-on-one coaching curricula tailored to the interests and skill-sets of each trainee.
We work with trainees from all walks of life: retirees, single parents re-entering the workforce, youth entering the workforce for the first time, students earning service learning credit, international (ESL) students, adults with disabilities, people recovering from injuries, soldiers transitioning from active duty, people transitioning from incarceration and more. These people are our neighbors, our community members, and our friends. We may help them obtain the skills they need, but it is their character and determination that drives their success.
