From Worcester Interfaith

Dear Friends,

I write to share two great resources for our community. The first is job opportunities in Worcester for the Census. The Census is a national count used to determine critical decisions, like political representation and what public and private resources go to communities. When a community is undercounted by the Census, it results in political inequality and less funding for those communities. The communities who are historically undercounted are often communities who experience barriers to accessing other resources. There are about 100 positions available in the region for the next 12-18 months. Some of these positions pay up to $25.00 an hour.

The second is that the Worcester Jobs Fund continues to provide training opportunities for local residents to prepare them for good jobs!  They are currently recruiting for 2 FREE Job Trainings:

Please share with your networks.

Sincerely,
Isabel
