JVS Springboard to Success Helping Women Get a New Start on Employment for the New Year

There is help and hope for women facing difficult circumstances who need to return to the job market. JVS provides assistance to women from all social and economic backgrounds in Southeastern Michigan who must find a job following unemployment, divorce or the death or disability of a spouse or partner. In January, Springboard to Success combines computer training with JVS’s hallmark Women to Work program.

Offered at no charge to participants, the program helps women assess their vocational interests, identify work-related skills, prepare resumes, develop interviewing and networking skills and launch a job search. It also includes hands-on Microsoft Office Suite 2010 training.

Springboard to Success begins with an informational meeting on Jan. 4 and the program starts on Jan. 9.  The class will meet from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at JVS in Southfield.
