Community Progress Council’s Workforce Development coaches focus on participants’ strengths while helping clients to identify internal motivations to promote success in the workforce.
Our coaches help participants learn problem-solving skills so they can help themselves to build a plan that promotes ownership and commitment. While working on identifying and overcoming barriers, participants may pursue skills, training and educational opportunities.
Community Progress Council’s Workforce Development program regularly offers workshops and classes to residents of York County and include topics such as certified nursing assistant (CNA), job fair and job search preparation, as well as other literacy and language proficiency courses.
