Did you know that before TEEM participants engage in Culinary Arts or Construction  programs that they first complete Empower class? This three-week course teaches  important life and work skills that help ease their transition into society.

This class occurs Monday through Thursday from 9am to 3pm. During this time, participants learn skills such as financial literacy, reducing angry feelings, healthy workplace behavior, resume building, interviewing skills, effective communication,  and more!

This class is essential to Re-Entry participants. After completion of the course, we typically celebrate with a pizza party! Then participants begin trade training programs and can start their journey to a new career!
