Workforce Solutions is Uplift Solutions workforce development training program launched in May 2017 to alleviate poverty by addressing social deficits and access to employment in under-served communities. The Uplift Workforce Solutions program is designed to provide formerly-incarcerated and like-situated individuals an opportunity to gain long-term employment through the remediation of negative thought patterns, poor decision making and bad habits. The program is built on the foundation of life skills training with a progression into technical skills training. Uplift maintains engagement with program participants through its case management personnel for a period of three years.
In the second phase of the program participants transition to an employer-informed simulated training. During this phase participants learn exceptional customer service and sales training; and receive simulated training on the actual systems and equipment they will use during employment. During this time, participants have the opportunity to role-play newly learned behaviors.
Case Managed Connected Services
The program provides both hard and soft skills through a combination of classroom instruction, hands on experience, and on-the-job support. Participants are required to complete an entrance survey that will inform the classroom instruction relative to life-skills training and social-services support.
