The Joseph Project is a faith-based jobs initiative to connect people with jobs. Participants go through a weeklong life skills training program and then are offered a chance to interview with companies looking to hire.
The project started as a constituent service through the office of U.S. Senator Ron Johnson. While traveling through the state, the senator found that manufacturers' number one concern was not having enough workers. Yet when he visited central city neighborhoods, the problem was not enough jobs. The Joseph Project partners with area businesses and volunteers in order to connect people in need to those jobs.
Every 3 months a new group of participants attends free weeklong sessions at POSC. The classes, taught by volunteers, cover topics such as teamwork, time management, financial management, conflict resolution, and spiritual fitness. Participants who successfully complete the week of training will get a job interview with employers who are looking to hire.
