Adults with low literacy and/or no high school diploma are at a special disadvantage in securing a job – especially as our economy reels from this pandemic. WLS offers three services that improve skills and gets adults job ready!
Read Better – Tutors are ready to assist low literate adults in improving their skills; they will work by phone and or video/conference. Free, one-to-one tutoring is available for adults who want to read better. More information can be found HERE.
HSE Connect! – Monthly information sessions – held via Zoom – as well as a Helpline – are available to explain the steps to obtain a high school equivalency diploma and assist in navigating self study resources and supportive services. Register for an upcoming information session HERE.
Job Search Assistance – In addition to our printed Job Search Tool Kit, job coach Rebecca Mazin is available to provide phone/Zoom-based coaching on job search strategies, as well as offering experience through mock interviewing. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.
All of these services are featured on FirstFind.org. Your help in making people aware of these services is essential. Know that we’re always willing to do a special program explaining these services to agencies, businesses, and community groups. Please spread the word!
