Employment Works Achieves Major Milestones

Employment Works, an employment and training program for probationers, recently completed its first contract term and shattered all expectations. From August 25, 2008 to August 1, 2010, the program placed 1,243 probationers into employment. Of these, a clear majority were in positions that pay $12/hour or more. In addition, 64% of customers retained employment for six months, and 61% of customers obtained their GEDs while participating in the program.
