There are often barriers that exist preventing women from getting the job training, encouragement, and education they need and want. The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center (PNC) and the Community Foundation of Southeastern CT partnered, through a grant, to alleviate the barriers of fuel costs to get to class; childcare and education costs. Most recently, 31 women attended these classes at the PNC.
This Department of Labor on wheels features experience staff who can help with resume writing and job searches on this unique bus outfitted with 12 computers. The Career Bus will be returning to the PNC on Friday, March 13 from 10 a.m to 2:30 p.m. and will be open to the public.
