JUMP! (Journey Upward ~ Making Progress) is an innovative, highly incentivized program developed by Pace in 2018 to encourage life / job skills learning for low-income individuals. Participants enrolled in the program will be those motivated to learn and progress in life. Upon completion of the program, participants will have an updated resume, recent work experience with references and enhanced job skills for upward mobility. Target participants are the underemployed (low wages/part-time) or unemployed individuals.
WHAT does the program involve?
The program consists of six two-hour experiential learning sessions designed for adults. Those successfully completing the sessions will be assigned for six weeks in paid job placements. Individuals must be an active participant in the program and attend five of the sessions to be placed for employment.
To prevent barriers to involvement, childcare services and transportation reimbursements will be provided to those participating in the program.
WHEN and WHERE?
Sessions are held on Thursday evenings at Pace’s main facility located at 525 N. 4th Street in Vincennes from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Dinner will be provided.
Dates for 2018 are as follows:
