Career Exploration and Training

LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model makes it possible for clients working in their national network of Financial Opportunity Centers® (FOC) to ramp up foundational literacy and math skills, get technical training and pursue certifications for a particular industry—and receive support like financial coaching to set long-term goals and help manage expenses during training. These programs connect clients to “middle skills” jobs with a career pathway, and help local employers staff up with employees who can get the job done.
