“Together We’re Better” Pre-Workforce Program

NEHDA, Syracuse Northeast Community Center, and ARISE are teaming up to implement the “Together We’re Better” pre-workforce program.

The goal of Together We’re Better is to combat social isolation by supporting people who have either never had a job or have not had a job in a long time, so they feel comfortable and confident seeking longer term employment after completing the program.

Participants will be placed as volunteers at local agencies, and they will be supported through weekly soft-skill group classes.

The first class will be on Wednesday, September 11th.

If you, or anyone you know, would be a good fit as a participant in Together We’re Better, please reach out to
