We are excited to receive a grant that targets businesses and citizens who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The WorkSource Atlanta grant is designed to assist 40-50 individuals impacted by layoffs due to COVID-19 and provide them with an opportunity to participate in our Work Experience Program(WEx).
The WorkSource Atlanta Work Experience (WEx) program is funded by the US Department of Labor. The purpose of the program is to provide subsidized paid internships for eligible participants to gain training at a particular company in a field of experience or potential interest, in an effort to learn, and build their resume’. The overall goal is for the participant to springboard into a permanent direct hire job. The WEx assignments would allow the participants to work up to 40 hours per week and WorkSource Atlanta would pay the participant an hourly wage up to 16 weeks. Suggested positions are listed below.
