Job training, tuition and other resources available for unemployed and underemployed

The El Dorado County Connections One Stop Resource Center is hosting two upcoming informational meetings for unemployed, underemployed or dislocated workers and youth in El Dorado County regarding the availability of tuition, on-the-job training and other supportive services through the federal Workforce Investment Act.

The informational sessions are free and will be held as follows:

April 25 from 3 to 5 p.m. for youth ages 17 to 21 at the El Dorado County Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville.

May 8 from 10 a.m. to noon for both youth and adults at the El Dorado County Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville.

Although not required, participants are encouraged to reserve a spot at one of the informational sessions. For more information, or to make a reservation for one of the sessions, call (530) 642-4897.

“Help is available for individuals to attend college or vocational training, complete a GED or high school diploma, or perform a job search,” said Sarah Schmudlach, Employment and Training supervisor with the Connections One Stop Resource Center.  “Paid work experience may be available through the program for those who qualify.”

The WIA program serves both youth and adults. The youth program is open to people ages 17 to 21; a 17-year-old must be a senior in high school. Adults who participate in the program must be able to support themselves while in training.

Those who cannot attend one of the informational sessions may visit the Connections One Stop Resource Center and ask to speak to a WIA staff member.  The Connections One Stop Resource Center is located at 3047 Briw Road in Placerville and at 3368 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Suite 202, in South Lake Tahoe. The offices are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
