Job Training & Employment

Developing Skills for Employment and Finding Jobs and Careers

Promoting Avenues to Employment

Our PAVE program offers job training, internships, and support for finding jobs and careers. To start, you’ll attend an orientation to learn more about PAVE and your eligibility for the program. From there, you’ll be matched with a Career Coach, participate in our self-paced Job Readiness Training, and visit our Career Lab for help with job searching, resume writing, applying to college, and more.

We also offer paid work experiences at our social enterprise Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShop and screen-printing business New Avenues INK, where you can build skills in a mentored environment.
