Sometimes gaining new skills through training can be just what you need to land your next job! Attend this session to learn if you are eligible for training assistance to develop useful skills for the workplace or to make the skills you already have more marketable. Dislocated workers from Boston-based companies and income-eligible adults from the city of Boston are especially welcome. This session will provide an overview of the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act, a federally funded skills training program that pays for job skills training to eligible individuals who meet specific criteria.
Training Grants/Funds: Boston residents or workers laid off from a Boston employer who meet eligibility guidelines may qualify for training funds and or/job services
Job Search Coaching Services: Eligible Massachusetts residents may qualify for comprehensive job search services.
