The Job Training Apprenticeship Program is a year-long training consisting of classroom learning, hands on job experience with guided practice in the work place, and weekly meetings with instructors and mentors for continued job and life skill coaching. Community Uplift Partnership uses the Jobs for Life curriculum to help students engage in a journey from unemployment or under employment to meaningful employment and increased economic opportunity.
During the classroom sessions, apprentices will learn key life principles from Biblical role models, identify and work through barriers, and learn skills to prepare them for the workplace and for life. Each apprentice will be paired with a Champion (mentor) who will walk the journey with them to encourage, problem solve and guide the apprentices through the process of increasing their employment opportunity.
To apply the skills apprentices are learning in the classroom, they will work in an apprenticeship experience where they will have a paid job in a supportive environment to encourage the learning process through hands on job training. One of the opportunities for apprenticeship is in the Reunion Coffee House caffeinated by CUP, or with one of CUP’s other partner businesses.
By the conclusion of the program, the students will have the tools needed to find and retain meaningful employment and engage in a journey that will lead them to a productive life.
