Open Houses about the Summer Office Skills program will be offered at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 17, as well as at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 9, Thursday, June 26 and Monday June 30. All classes will take place at the agency’s campus which is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton.

Work sites will be located throughout the county and hours will be dependent upon the employer’s needs.

The comprehensive Summer Office Skills program prepares participants to seek entry-level office administrative positions. In addition to 40 hours of computer skills training, participants will receive 20 hours of classroom instruction and 40 hours of work experience at a community employment site, which will further prepare participants for success in the job market. The time in the classroom is devoted to careering instruction, life skills training and interviewing strategies. Over the years, Project Self Sufficiency has partnered with a variety of local businesses, non-profit organizations and government entities to provide participants with externship opportunities. Participants gain real-life work experience while honing the computer skills they have received as part of the agency’s training programs.
