If you’re on government assistance and want to change that, an area employment organization can help.
The Missouri Job Center is hosting a lunch and learn event this Saturday in Joplin.
It’s all part of the Skill-Up Program that allows adult residents on food stamps to receive up to $10,000 for job training.
The program is designed to offer help with skills, training, and even employer connections once your training is complete.
Bubba Evansco of the Workforce Investment Board says the best part is that it won’t cost program participants a dime.
“If you’re working it might be kind of tough to get through, so we put together a lunch and learn which is gonna be on a Saturday, first time we’ve ever done that, it will start at 12 noon and will be over by 2:00, and it’s gonna be at the Advanced Training and Technology Center,” says Evansco.
The event is free and open to any adult currently on food stamps.
You don’t have to register in advance.
