Our career coaches are available to help you understand the requirements of the weekly job search activities and to assist you in getting back in the driver's seat of your career!.


TRANSFER

your job skills to a new industry.

Many businesses are hiring and encourage you to bring your natural skills and talent to their company.

A career coach can help you map and identify the transferrable skills you already have that will be valuable in your next job. Click here to contact a coach today.  


TRAIN

for a new career in an in-demand field.

Short-term training opportunities can help you quickly transition to a new career in an in-demand field. We can connect you with training programs like CDL licensing, medical & nursing assistance, fork-lift operators, and more that offer family-supporting wages at entry.

Scholarship funds may be available for these training programs - connect with us to see if you qualify. 


TARGET

your career goals through education.

Our partners at the Spokane Workforce Council developed a Pathway Planning Guide that links training programs at the Community Colleges of Spokane to the careers those degrees and certificates can lead to.

Use this tool to help plan which degree or training program will help you land the job you want!

Testimonials

I wanted to thank you for helping me get my life started! You helped me fill out the right forms and get funded and get to school. Then you gave me a huge hand in getting me connected to a company. I have applied for and been given an offer to my next chapter making way more money than I ever have before. I will never forget the impact you have had on me and my family by helping me.
