Case Management & Support Services
AWEE’s case managers and community employment specialists meet one-on-one with participants to assess each individual's career interest, skills and abilities. Once it has been determined that the individual is ready and able to commit to the program, AWEE then provides guidance to develop a personal success plan. Additional support activities include counseling, child care and transportation assistance, and referral services when needed.
Through AWEE’s Clothing Bank, participants have access to a large selection of suits, skirts, blouses and other attire to be prepared for job interviews and other career activities.
Job coaching, peer support groups and professional mentoring, as well as job placement assistance are just a sampling of the critical services AWEE provides its participants. Whatever the need, AWEE’s case managers and trainers connect participants with valuable skills or resources to make certain they’ll be bringing home a paycheck soon.
AWEE remains in contact with each program participant for two one year after completion of her/his program to provide moral support, encouragement and help assure long-term financial independence and well-being. It’s the extra step that pays dividends – for the participants and the employer - and sets AWEE apart from other job readiness programs. Employers love AWEE!
