We've launched EmpowernetCalifornia.org!
The website is the result of a collaborative effort of six California organizations that have successfully created programs to train disadvantaged workers for jobs in technology. As you know, careers in technology are ideal for entry-level workers ready to climb the ladder to higher pay in growing sectors.
At EmpowerNetCalifornia.org, we've created toolkits for a range of IT workforce development programs including:
- A+ Computer Technician Training
- College/Community Partnerships to facilitate IT workforce development
- Computer Re-use Social Venture
- Linux Training
- MCDST & Network training
- & More!
Each of these toolkits includes sets of downloadable documents such as curriculum & marketing materials to help you learn from the collective experiences of the EmpowerNet collaborative and other EmpowerNetCalifornia.org members. You get to jump start your program with proven materials from the get-go.
EmpowerNet California serves nonprofit organizations focused on alleviating poverty in underserved communities through workforce development. The programs that you will find on the website were designed and are currently being used at our own organizations to assist extremely low income adults with barriers to employment.
Come and join our community at: http://www.EmpowernetCalifornia.org to learn more about the support we can offer you and your community as you develop or expand your IT workforce programming. And please, invite your colleagues who may also be interested in making a difference in their communities.
p.s. We included you on our list because of your organization's interest in workforce development. We hope that you'll appreciate the intermittent emails we will be sending out announcing new toolkits, webinars and more. Please feel free to let us know if there are particular areas of interest to you or to unsubscribe if we're not a good fit for your organization.
