To provide continued support for the Vocational Specialist for Women and Youth who leads their enhanced Oasis Works program, a vocational training and job placement program that links participants to local sustainable employment. The Vocational Specialist will: teach 3-week employment readiness courses; work one-on-one with job seekers in their Employment Self-Help Center; teach certification courses culminating in ServSafe (restaurant), Customer Service, and Bank Teller certification; and oversee the job placement program that links program graduates directly with local internships and jobs. Their social workers will carry out a mental health assessment for each participant and provide support and referrals as necessary. They will expand and enhance the vocational training Oasis makes available to its current youth employees who serve as after school tutors and summer camp counselors. Oasis provides educational and vocational programs that help women enter and succeed in the workforce, and help children flourish academically and stay in school.
