About Hope Works
The first Hope Works “semester” began with eight “students” on November 1, 2010. Over the course of the nine-month program, they have attended classroom courses and one-on-one mentoring to attain the skills they need to succeed both inside and outside of the workplace, including:
- Interviewing and employability skills
- Basic computer training
- Job search assistance
- Proficiencies in organization, punctuality and reliability
Additionally, the participants have been actively working with public agencies within Norwalk, assisting the police and fire departments, merchant association and mayor’s office, with various community efforts including street corner cleanup and shoveling sidewalks on snowy days. We are extremely proud of this initiative, and of the progress being made by its participants.
Put Our Graduates to Work
Our Hope Works participants have already come so far. But the true success of the program will ultimately be measured by their achievement in the workplace. Won’t you consider hiring our 2010-2011 graduates for entry-level positions?
Their employability skills and personal qualities will make them ideal candidates within many industries, and we know their potential and enthusiasm will allow them to make vital contributions to your companies. Thank you.
