On-the-Job Training (OJT) is a program in which individuals are trained at the job site under the guidance and supervision of participating employers. In turn, those employers qualify for reimbursement of up to 50% of eligible employee wages while the employees are in training for up to 600 hours. Employers may contract for more than one position, depending on the labor needs of the company. This allows for simultaneous training sessions and faster staff development. The OJT program makes it easier for employer and employee alike to take the time to thoroughly train for the real-world business skills that are required to fully reach their potential and become vital assets to their employers.
Individual Training Account (ITA) Scholarships provide funding up to $5,000 to cover tuition, books, and supplies for individual classroom training of a wide range of professional job skills. The ITA scholarships provide one-on-one job training with experts in prestigious and highly demanded professions such as health care, solar engineering, laboratory techs, and many more, all in a comfortable learning environment. Trainees who successfully complete the program receive valuable certificates of completion and job placement assistance.
The Work Experience Program is designed to assist eligible participants by teaching and encouraging the development of self-reliant life skills and professional work ethic. All participants will receive employment readiness training, and are then placed with an employer of their preference for 600 hours of training.
Subsidized Employment is a two tier program that includes expanded work experience and subsidized employment opportunities for eligible participants. The primary goal of the program is to provide immediate source of income for low-income families. This short-term opportunity may lead to future long-term unsubsidized employment and self-sufficiency.
