We are a team of Volunteers who Support the Employment Programs at CityLink!
At CityLink we know that there are some big areas of a person's life that have to be stable in order for them to be healthy and thriving. And one of biggest is Employment. We work to support CityLink's partner agency Cincinnati Works who engages clients who want to get into the workforce or advance in the workplace. The program provides soft job skills education through a one week holistic job training workshop that is complemented by individualized job coaching. We also partner with Per Scholas Cincinnati which is a nationally recognized IT Certification Training program helping folks break into the in-demand career field of IT.
Volunteers and staff members come alongside clients by providing coaching and ongoing support on their journey.
Volunteers offer their expertise, feedback and encouragement to clients through practicing interviewing skills, creating and editing resumes, teaching a seminar about health and wellness, and during the job search process. Support from volunteers throughout every step of the workshop creates more space for staff members to work one-on-one with clients while allowing clients to gain the necessary skills, confidence, and support to reach their goals.
Please give to our fundraiser. Employment is a cornerstone to anyone's ability to support themselves and their families. As volunteers we've seen first hand how our support is literally someone else's the chance to stabalize their family.
