Getting People back to work
Our Georgetown Works program aims to provide our members with training through employment bootcamps to help them find employment and stay in those jobs. The program also works to teach skills to help members move up in their careers.
In 2020, in collaboration with three non-profits we conducted 12 employment boot camps, graduated 81 participants, and placed 45 people in jobs, with 42 still in those jobs today. Once our Georgetown Works members are placed, our employment coaches work with them to keep them on the job and help them advance. The coaches encourage, challenge and build up each member to help them reach their full potential and escape poverty.
