WORKFORCE READINESS INITIAVE

GBNCC’s Workforce Readiness program helps individuals break down the barriers of employment faced by immigrants and help provide an opportunity to employment.

GBNC assesses the general requirements by employers, and incorporate these required skills into a training for the community. An additional challenge immigrants may face is the inability to verify previous job experiences which is also a black mark for any job application.

The program builds on an existing track record of individual language and computer education services for adult immigrants which is more efficient and integrated and addresses all the barriers to employment and not just ESOL.

YOUTH ARTS AND CULTURE

Greater Boston Nazarene Compassionate Center, GBNCC, has launched an initiative for youth in the greater Boston area since the year 2008. Culture for Change, CFC, aims to affect and influence the community’s at risk youth, ages 15-21, by empowering, involving and increasing the creative opportunity to implement change. The initiative extends its efforts in teaching leadership skills, while using art as the main teaching tools. The youth, advocate for social and racial justice. 

A majority of the youth are immigrants from the poor country of Haiti, as first or second generation Haitian-Americans. Remembering the lack of opportunity and resources available to them in Haiti, they take pride in participating in a program design to support low-income families. GBNCC has given hope and the opportunity to culturally root artistic abilities and engage in a community collaborative through artistic presentation. GBNCC believes all deserve an opportunity, and opportunities may be best demonstrated through talent.

The organization continues to serve affected families and individuals as they rebuild their lives.
