Free Job Training Program for Women at Project Self Sufficiency

The 16-week HOW Program combines intensive computer skills training with classroom instruction and off-site internships to prepare women who have been out of the work force or underemployed to seek entry-level office administrative positions.   Computer training and classroom instruction will take place at the agency’s campus, located at 127 Mill Street in Newton.  Interested participants are encouraged to attend an Open House to learn more about the program.  Open Houses will be held at 10:00 a.m. on September 10th and 19th, at 1:00 p.m. on September 11th, and at 6:00 p.m. on September 17th and 23rd.

Women who take part in the agency’s HOW program can expect 80 hours of computer skills training, including instruction in Microsoft Word, Excel and other applications.  The HOW program also includes 40 hours of classroom instruction and 120 hours at an unpaid externship at a community employment site, which further prepares participants to successfully venture into the job market.  Coursework focuses on workplace navigation, life skills training, resume preparation, and interviewing strategies.
