Workshops & Job Skills Training for Residents
If you have a passion for recovery and are looking for a great way to give back, we are seeking individuals or groups to volunteer their time and talent. Our residents face many challenges, such as finding gainful employment. Sometimes it is just because they lack the training and skills they need to apply. If you have experience in job skills training, resume building, basic computer skills etc. , or ESL contact Alyssa at (508) 755-6403 Ext. 10 to see how your experience can benefit others!
