With assistance from Niagara County Employment and Training and the ATTAIN Lab, a series of workshops designed to build both self-esteem and prepare individuals for job readiness are held quarterly. Topics include: Interviewing Techniques, Resume Writing, Doing Your Homework, Dressing for Success and “You CAN do it.” These sessions prepare residents for the workforce and give them the skills and confidence needed to achieve greater self-sufficiency. Participants work with the Niagara Falls Housing Authority’s Case Manager to identify employment opportunities and eliminate any barriers that stand in the way of success.
To encourage residents to further their educational goals, college nights are held at the Doris W. Jones Family Resource Building. Representatives from Niagara County Community College and Niagara University discuss financial aid, scholarship opportunities and educational initiatives. College tours are also provided.
