2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the Workforce Development Division. Beginning with just two programs, we have since provided over 20 training and employment services to over 95,000 clients. This year alone, we will be training more than 200 low wage immigrants for careers in hospitality, construction and luxury retail and providing over 475 adults with English literacy skills. Our services are targeted at immigrants living in poverty and are free to those who qualify.
Your generous donation will ensure that the Workforce Development Division can continue to provide quality training and educational services to communities most at need.
I have been working at CPC for over 10 years. When I first started with CPC, I was the program assistant for the Hospitality Training Program. My responsibilities included answering incoming calls, filing documents, preparing training materials, and following up with the program’s students about their job search.
After about seven years, I transitioned over to be the program assistant for the Literacy Program. I oversaw the recruitment and enrollment processes, as well as followed up with students regarding their current situation. My favorite part of my job is being able to see students find jobs that they enjoy after working so hard to complete CPC’s programs.
Thank you for your support!
