Our Focus

Our Ready For Work program, beginning June 7th, 2021,  is an 8-week job readiness and apprenticeship program for women with school-aged or younger children in the NPU-V, with a focus on Adair Park and Pittsburgh communities in southwest Atlanta. The program specifically targets mothers who are currently unemployed or underemployed.

This program begins with a 4-week training program that will focus on overall stability, socio-emotional health, and professional training. After completion, participants will have the opportunity to move on to a 4-week apprenticeship with one of our community partners.
