National Transitional Jobs Network visited Southwest Housing Solutions

From the October 12, 2012 National Transitional Jobs Network newsletter: Michigan Earn & Learn. The NTJN advocates for TJ in Detroit.


In Michigan, the National Transitional Jobs Network visited Southwest Housing Solutions and met with Congressman John Conyers Jr. to talk about the successes of Transitional Jobs programs in Detroit and the federal policy solutions we need to help more job seekers access these programs. SHS spearheads the Southeast Michigan Earn & Learn program – a Transitional Jobs program that supports transitions to work for disconnected at-risk youth, particularly young minority males; ex-offenders re-entering the workforce; and chronically unemployed adults in the Detroit area.
