Gateway Center recognizes that for many of our residents, their ability to secure and maintain long term housing will directly correlate with their ability to earn income through employment. Gateway Center’s Career Resource Center provides essential tools, trainings, employer linkages and coaching services to help our residents prepare and search for employment. Meaningful job readiness experiences can lead to better career opportunities down the road. The Career Resource Center supports our residents in identifying an array of workforce options that connect with their experiences, skill sets, and professional aspirations. The Career Resource Center provides the following services:
- Soft skills
- Financial management
- Organizational skills
- Interpersonal skills & teamwork
- Workplace preparation & communication
- Job retention
Identifying substantive work and internship opportunities is critical to the mission of Gateway Center. The Career Resource Center utilizes partnerships with local workforce development agencies and businesses to create internships and job opportunities that our residents can start to bring shape to future careers, and inspire them to achieve in program and in community.
Our rigorous job readiness program puts our residents in a position to succeed. The experiences our residents take from their jobs and internships do far more than just add a line to their résumés. These experiences create connections and networks for them in community that can last a lifetime.
