The ones we consider family
As the outcome of the project is to empower participants to connect with a broad and diverse range of individuals and organizations, our programs itself follow the same model. Government agencies, businesses, and nonprofits should all find value in cross-sector collaboration and the sharing of resources and knowledge. These projects help several Washington, D.C. government agencies properly identify and deliver direct services to individual community members and neighborhoods. Employers provide our participant with six months of On The Job Training (OJT). This trains and empowers “disconnected” Washington, D.C. residents and actively helps our participant earn an income while in our training programs. By doing this, employers and organizations within our city are better connected and positioned to work together to collectively solve community problems. Business partners on this project will be encouraged and supported in offering employment and apprenticeships to program participants.
