Applicants who are accepted begin with a job training program that pays $16/hour for 16-20 hours per week.
The job training program will be via remote learning due to COVID-19.
Applicants must be 18 years or older, unemployed, and Chicago residents.
Participants are meant to transition into permanent, full-time employment after graduation.
Program participants also have opportunities to earn professional certifications, gain access to free legal consultation for record sealing and expungement, and receive the support of a case manager available to provide referrals for supportive services.
Growing Home will continue to facilitate the 2020 program as a blended virtual and in-person curriculum.
Farm-based portions of the program will still be held on-site with heightened health and safety measures.
All traditionally classroom-based lessons will be facilitated virtually over Zoom.
Attached to this email is an updated Production Assistant Job Description that provides more detail on exactly what the blended on-site/remote job training program will look like.
