The Get To Work!™ Program is a job readiness and retention program for individuals in need of learning and developing employability skills to increase the opportunity for achieving success in the workplace. The curriculum is suitable for youth, as well as adults who may need to refresh their knowledge.
The program includes – but is not limited to – the following:

Participants are provided with a career assessment at the beginning of the course to help highlight the fields/industries they are interested in. We utilize the career assessment results to help the participants gain insight into their potential career choices regarding educational requirements, job duties, and potential salaries.
Each participant will be granted online access to all course information, homework assignments, templates, and quizzes.
Upon completion of the course, participants will have assembled a complete Career Preparation Package to assist them with their job searches and interview preparation, and receive a certificate of completion.
The Get to Work!™ Program also incorporates CTAE/CTE Standards to help participants learn to:
