Making a commitment to enter the Ready To Work program is a decision that has positive, lifechanging results. From the very day participants take this step – their commitment to make change begins with the opportunity to start earning a paycheck through work assignments on campus. As they adjust to the program demands, they receive a 1-on-1orientation from RTW case managers. Together, they assess needs and set goals, such as selecting a training model which includes educational curriculum and occupational training. Evening classes and courses continue throughout the program and include life skills development such as financial management, parenting, and general education. In return, participants commit to getting their lives back on track and utilize their paycheck funds to begin paying any owed child support or fees.
