Valaryee Mitchell is the new director of the Center for Workforce Innovation.
They provide wrap around services for those seeking employment. They will meet with someone to develop a one-on-one employment plan. Then they offer a variety of trainings — a forklift training, construction safety, CPR, Nurses Aid / Med Tech, Food safety, plumbing, customer service, HVAC, cosmology, and welding. One of the keys is being able to connect people with jobs on the other end.
They also work on soft skills in presenting oneself. Their strength is in being able to spend time with people on these things and walk alongside them. What kind of partnership be possible for us with the Center?
