For Employers

In addition to the opportunity to help the community and individuals seeking to better their lives, employers participating in Earn + Learn enjoy many benefits, including:

  • Access to qualified workers who are recruited, screened, prepared and supported by Earn + Learn.
  • Up to $5,000 grants to employers who hire and retain employees for at least one year. These grants are available through enrollment in the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Community Ventures Program.
  • Post-employment supportive services to help participants do well at work. Earn + Learn works with both employers and employees to address any issues that arise. If an employer needs to terminate an Earn +Learn employee at any time during the subsidized term, Earn + Learn will work to identify new candidates.
