If you’re looking to re-enter the workforce, take advantage of second-chance opportunities, or simply start with the basics, Employment Works has the services to help you get back on track.
In August 2008, the Department of Small Business Services launched Employment Works, a program developed to help match probationers to full-time, quality jobs with long-term potential. By connecting employers to a largely untapped workforce, Employment Works aims to increase economic opportunities for individuals with criminal records and reduce recidivism.
