Organizations like BOSS play a vital role in empowering unemployed individuals facing extra barriers to achieve self-sufficiency and thrive in their careers. The Career Training, Education, and Housing Center (CTEHC), located inside BOSS' Wellness, Empowerment & Resiliency Campus, assists formerly incarcerated and justice-involved job seekers, providing comprehensive training and support to help individuals gain meaningful employment.
Creating Pathways to Success
Established in 2014, CTEHC serves as a stepping stone towards self-sufficiency, offering a range of career training programs that cater to diverse skill sets and interests.
CTEHC helps people assess their employment skills/abilities, needs, and goals, offering referrals for basic education, sector-specific job training, paid on-the-job training (in BOSS or at partner work sites), and referrals to Peralta Community College District for degree or certification programs. Combining these resources with soft skills training, peer mentoring, and basic needs support, CTEHC equips individuals with the tools they need to succeed in the workplace.
Collaboration with Community Partners
CTEHC's success lies in its ability to collaborate with community partners, businesses, and employers who share BOSS' vision of empowering individuals through meaningful employment.
By partnering with local companies, CTEHC ensures that the training programs align with industry needs, making participants job-ready and highly sought after by employers.
These partnerships also open avenues for internships, apprenticeships, and direct job placements, creating tangible pathways for individuals to launch their careers.
