ICS Workforce Development Centers (WDC) support clients to develop the skills and confidence needed to secure a job and stay employed. From job readiness to soft skill development and budget planning, the WDC’s are changing lives.
Expert volunteers are on hand to help identify opportunities and navigate the employment application process. In addition to general support and coaching, WDC volunteers also provide resume and cover letter writing and review assistance, online job search, and application submissions. All services are free, and while no appointment is required it is recommended for one-on-one help to ensure an expert volunteer is available. Want to schedule an appointment? Click here

We partner with Tucson Urban League to present FREE Financial Empowerment Workshops.
Experienced financial experts will share tips and strategies for improving your credit score, how to save for financial emergencies, how to save money for a house, how to set achievable financial goals, making good financial and life choices, and much more. You can sign up for a workshop through our events calendar.
Interfaith Community Services hosts Getting Ahead Workshops. This program, funded by the Pima County “Ending Poverty Now” initiative, helps ensure people are not just getting by, but are instead “getting ahead” with an intensive 16-week course designed for people in or near poverty.
The free workshops offer a supportive environment to explore solutions and build resources to help participants become more financially stable. Participants examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − banking, housing, jobs, transportation − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.
ICS is always looking for volunteers with backgrounds in business or human resources to serve in the Resource Center. Hours vary. Duties include helping clients get set up on one of our computer stations, monitoring their progress, and being a source of encouragement along the way.
Interested volunteers should contact Tori Carlson-Foscz at (520) 526-9308.
