Job Training and Placement
Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission is committed to meeting men and women where they are and helping them get to the next step. In many cases that “next-step” may be re-learning basic academic skills such as math, English, reading, and computer skills.
Some our program participants are college educated and our goal is to help them with resume preparation and job interview skills. By the time a man or woman leaves our recovery program, he or she is poised for employment.
Recently, some of our men have obtained jobs paying in excess of $25 an hour, with the vast majority paid between $15 and $18 including benefits. We currently have men studying: Home Inspection, Real Estate, Computer Skills, Spanish, Advanced Biblical Studies, and G.E.D. Prep.
