Momentum Urban Employment InitiativeMomentum is a program that provides eligible unemployed and underemployed people with job and life skill training to secure and maintain new employment. The six week program commenced in October 2013 and is held every quarter.
Momentum is a radically different way of addressing Workforce Development in Urban Neighborhoods. With a unique blend of life skills, essential skills and employment readiness skills, Momentum gets to the root of what causes job loss and develops with traits that employers crave.
Each Momentum graduate completes a rigorous 6-week course that includes 100 hours of in class instruction and 100 hours of Volunteer Work Experience. In addition, graduates are placed into good paying jobs from their network of over 50 local employers.
WORKFORCE READINESS TRAINING
Within our organization and the numerous agencies and affiliates we partner with there exists a passionate and devoted group of constituents who have significant investment and business interests within Western Michigan. We have worked hard in nurturing these partnerships and passionate community leaders over the past 10 years. These business leaders form a part of the Momentum Business Network who will be reserving a position in their respective businesses.
At the successful conclusion of the 6 week program, participants will be invited to apply for job opportunities through the Momentum Business Network.
