Make Virtual Class a Reality!
Could you imagine what your life would be like if you only made $15,289 annually right now? Now imagine making that little during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your hours are cut or you’re laid off altogether, you don’t have health insurance, and you have no idea how you’ll stay afloat until things get back to normal. Currently, $15,289 is what re:work training candidates make on average when they first join our program, and these are the challenges they are facing due to the current situation.
Because of COVID-19, we must move quickly to transfer our curriculum to an online format so that current and future candidates don’t have to put their futures on hold. The completion of this new online curriculum, which is the backbone of our program, has been no small feat. A project that was slated to take 9 months will now have to be delivered in the shortest time frame possible - 1 month.
In the immediate, our online program will serve current candidates so they don’t have to put their futures on hold during these unpredictable times. In the long term, our online curriculum will help us scale the re:work program to serve candidates from all over the country, making workplaces everywhere look more like our neighborhoods.
Those who depend on us cannot wait for "normalcy" to arrive. Help us continue this important work by joining the movement forward and making a donation!
