COVID-19 turned the world of work and job market on its head and created a new job classification, Essential Workers.
H2H will take a deep dive into the importance of proper sanitation, wearing PPE for precautions, and most importantly following public health guidelines to prevent the spread of the contagion.
H2H will offer a few incentives to reinforce our training in initiative:
H2H, a community-based Development and Job Placement Program targets the unemployed and essential worker. Our innovative vision is to conduct an initial pilot of ten participants for evaluation and scaling.
Following the pilot and based on lessons learned, we will retool to extend the program over a 12-month period.
H2H will conduct training on industry-hiring requisites and workforce skill-building. Participants will be provided with job placement resources to link job seekers entering into the workforce with hiring firms. Career awareness and discovery workshops will also be conducted to increase growth potential beyond the essential ceiling.
H2H is built around five basic workforce domains:
The H2H Cohort Programs will bridge the gap of the unemployed, under-employed, and displaced workers from minority communities by providing job readiness and industry workforce skills. The outcomes of our educational training and workshops will prepare this population for better job opportunities and moving into lucrative careers.
The H2H MODEL follows a socio-economic impact agenda by targeting individuals 16+ and including the unemployed, under-employed, homeless, returning citizens, LBGTQ+, asylum seekers, immigrants, and sex trafficking victims as participants. Initially, our intent is to partner with food service firms, an industry highly impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns and most likely to rebound with mass hiring needs by fall.
Our goal is to sustain resources to continue this crucial and important work through grant funding, private donors, corporate sponsors, fundraising events, Internet solicitation (i.e., Go Fund Me), charitable foundations, investor capital and municipal funds.
H2H will partner with civic, faith-based, like-focused community-based organizations, business leaders, staffing firms, workforce sector centers and workforce outreach services to recruit participants and guide them through the cohort in preparation for hire.
