Subject: [Aug 20] Community Engagement Session: Free skills training resources available for higher-paying Austin jobs
Friends of the East Austin community,
I invite you to join me for a community engagement session Saturday, August 20 from 10:00 – 11:30am at Greater Mt. Zion Church (streaming options also available). This event is hosted in partnership by Workforce Solutions Capital Area, Travis County Precinct One, Austin Economic Development, Huston-Tillotson University, and Greater Mt. Zion Church.
Why it matters: Workforce Solutions is pleased to announce 1,000 NEW scholarships available for free career training made possible by funding from Travis County and the City of Austin. These scholarships connect local residents to quality training and job placement in high-demand industries such as IT, healthcare, skilled trades, and manufacturing.
What we’ll do: This event is part of a series of community engagement sessions throughout Austin to raise awareness for the opportunities we have available to the community for no-cost career training and upskilling. We’ll provide a direct opportunity for residents of East Austin and beyond to learn about how they can grow their skills and increase their income through Workforce Solutions. The most recent session was at the end of May and initiated instant interest in these programs.
My ask to you: I hope you’ll join us and invite your network to this event. There are also free opportunities for organizations to join in as a Supporting Organization, where they will be highlighted during this event and future sessions. Please let me know if this might be of interest to you.
