Workforce Training

In Washington County, the average family of four needs to earn at least $65,000 a year in order to meet all their needs, yet the median wage is only $35,000. One proven way to close this gap is with a better-paying job. Our workforce training programs work with clients to identify career opportunities that lead to living wage jobs. With support and resources, we help people take an important step towards self-sufficiency.

Career Boost

Career Boost provides career coaching and career development programs for SNAP recipients. Once a month, participants can meet with a career coach for assistance with job search tools, one-on-one coaching, training & education, and connecting participants with employers.

Through this training and education, participants will gain new skills for specific jobs. With job search and placement, participants will make connections with employers and within industries that match up with their qualifications.

This program is in partnership with WorkSource Beaverton-Hillsboro.

Career coaches are connectors. They will connect you to employers who are hiring, but they do not directly hire anyone.

Career Boost does not serve individuals receiving TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). Please refer to an ODHS (Oregon Department of Human Services) representative for similar services.
