Workforce Development Centers

Changing Lives.

From job readiness to soft skill development to self-efficacy programs, the WFDC supports clients on their path to develop the skills and confidence needed to secure a job and stay employed.

Workforce Development Centers (WFDC) are currently open to help job seekers by appointment only. This is to ensure the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors.

All services are FREE. Expert staff and volunteers are on hand to help identify opportunities and navigate the employment application process. In addition to general support and coaching, WFDC teams also provide resume and cover letter writing assistance, online job search support, application submissions and interview skills training.

To schedule a consultation, please fill out the request form below.

Getting Ahead Workshops

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 stable. Participants examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − spending, housing, jobs, transportation, resources − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.

Our next Cohort for Getting Ahead will begin April 1, 2021. Meetings will be held virtually every Thursday 9am – 12 noon for 17 weeks.

If you are interested in future cohorts or to learn more about participating in the Getting Ahead workshop contact Tandala Kidd at tkidd@icstucson.org or (520) 526-9311
