NUHORIZONS JOBS FOR WOMEN WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Over the past 12-18 months we have been doing research and developing a comprehensive workforce development program.
Due to the effects of COVID-19 - social distancing, concerns with mass gatherings, etc. we have spent considerable time rethinking our concept and developing a project that will be (1) more effective with (2) the potential to reach hundreds or thousands of women.
The Program is being finalized as a national online workforce development program that will be made available to individuals from within the facility they are currently residing. (emergency shelters transitional housing facilities, etc.).
Your Nuhorizons, Inc. will enter into Memorandum's of Understandings ("MOU's") with these facilities whereby Nuhorizons will arrange for the installation of a terminal(s) within an area designated by the MOU partner for use by program clients.
Our goal is to launch the Program by the second quarter of 2021.
The Program will provide access for each client to a diversified range of online educational, vocational and workforce development programs and services with a focus on a personal approach for each client based on their individual circumstances. Our goal is to assist clients in achieving financial stability. For most clients, achieving financial stability is the most important aspect in breaking the chain from their abusers.
Nuhorizons will enter into MOU's with emergency shelters, transitional living and other facilities that provide housing and shelter for victims of domestic violence. Nuhorizons will arrange for the installation of a terminal within the area designated for use ny the MOU program partner. The MOU shall state that all rules and regulations for participation in the Program and use of Program terminals Including hours of operation) will be determined by the MOU partner. Terminals may include Microsoft Office 365 to provide program participants multiple online tools for their use throughout their program participation.
With an individually created login, each client will have the ability to continue to participate in the Program even after they move to a different location to live.
Nuhorizons currently projects activating pilot test programs at 3 to 5 facilities in the third quarter of 2020, with an expanded Program roll-out throughout 2021.
Grant funding is being sought from various foundations to fund the direct expenses of the Program.
Additionally, in conjunction with Pay Pal Giving Fund and eBay for Nonprofits, Nuhorizons and Program Director Kaitlyn Carpenter are operating a store on eBay where 100% of the revenues received from the sale of donated items go to fund Program operations. (Third party sellers can also elect to donate a percentage of their sales to Nuhorizons).
