We want residents to be well prepared to enter the job market and start on new career paths. That means getting the training needed for seeking and landing the job and navigating the workplace effectively.
Guest speakers from the community make presentations on topics to help them achieve their new career goals. Topics cover a wide variety of issues, including understanding sexual harassment in the workplace, developing interview skills, and managing the move from public assistance to employment.
Studies consistently show that education plays a big part in career advancement. A Bureau of Labor Statistics study showed that education makes a big difference in weekly earnings.
That’s why Chadwick Residence supports and encourages residents who are seeking a GED, vocational certification or college degree. We provide internet access and tutoring.
The key part of our program provides residents with the exciting opportunity to gain a valuable college education in the Syracuse University HEOP program. The program offers:
