Unemployed? Start Here!

Centralia College is holding a series of Worker Retraining workshops for those who are unemployed and interested in attending college. The workshops will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, June 7, 14, 21, and 28, in Kemp Hall, room 101. In addition to the Worker Retraining program, attendees will learn about other educational grants available. The workshops are open and anyone who is unemployed is encouraged to attend.

The Worker Retraining program is a partnership between community and technical colleges and the Employment Security Department. It provides training and education benefits for Washington State workers and veterans who are drawing unemployment, have been laid off from their jobs, are displaced homemakers, or are active duty military personnel with separation orders.

The program is used in conjunction with other benefit and grant programs to retrain workers for more stable and upwardly mobile employment opportunities and offers other possible funding for childcare, tools, and other testing and educational expenses. In addition, the Worker Retraining program offers support services, including career advising, educational planning, resource referrals, job development, job referrals and help with resumes.

For more information about Worker Retraining or other grant programs at Centralia College contact Joan Meister at jmeister@centralia.edu or call 360-736-9391, ext. 385.
