TE’s case managers conduct a detailed assessment for each student that identifies goals and the barriers to achieving these goals.
Once identified, TE uses internal resources and our external network of vendors to address barriers that include: child care, work uniforms, and substance abuse services; all at no cost to the student.
Legal barriers including eviction, debt, bad credit, child support, unpaid traffic fines, and past convictions can be significant (and costly) barriers for the working poor and low-income job seekers. TE is unique for having legal services seamlessly embedded into employment programming and offered by our own full-time attorneys.
TE is also currently expanding access to and understanding of Certifications for Qualification Employment (CQEs), which do benefit job seekers with former involvement in the criminal justice system and the businesses that employ them. Learn more about CQEs.
