Program Proposal

Connecticut Faith Jobs Collaborative (CFJC) proposes to execute and complete the tasks related to the development, design, and implementation of a Workforce Development Program (WDP). It is proposed that a race and gender neutral program be implemented that assists Connecticut residents to receive building trade employment and training slots. It is proposed that each employment slot contain 1,000 hours, which will provide an opportunity for recipients of those slots to develop a marketable skill bank. Most starting wages are $15-$20.00 per hour. The Program will be implemented over a twelve (12) month period at which time it is anticipated that 125 WDP graduates will either enter on-the-job-training (OJT), skilled craftsmen, or laborer positions. Current Connecticut projects or employment needs will provide the employment opportunities to foster Connecticut resident’s success in the building trade industry and beyond. These wages will significantly contribute to Connecticut’s economy. For Connecticut residents to gain immediate benefits from these projects they must vigorously participate in the opportunities taking place in Connecticut now and projected for the very near future. Connecticut residents must be properly prepared to obtain and retain these employment positions.

Program Objectives

The WDP objective is to provide hiring employers with motivated and industry prepared candidates for employment. To reach this objective the WDP shall:

  • Outreach and recruit throughout Connecticut
  • Interview and screen applicants
  • Conduct aptitude and drug testing on final candidates
  • Select an appropriate number of applicants to meet the employment qualifications requested by employers
  • Implement 4-week building trade pre-employment training classes
  • Distribute required materials etc., to hired WDP graduates
  • Provide hired graduates stipend funds during their first week of work to cover transportation and lunch costs
  • Provide monthly job site visits by Counselors to monitor and counsel WDP placements and to interface with employers
