Instilling self-sufficiency is the cornerstone of our mission.
Our primary objective is to help clients gain relevant training, certifications, or post-secondary education that directly lead to improved career opportunities. Current training programs include business, information technology, medical, vocational trades, childcare, behavioral health, and culinary arts. Our job training programs are specifically designed for residential and community-based clients in our care as part of their customized case management plans. One exception is our Culinary Arts Program which is open to any qualified applicant in the community (you do not have to be a Metro Ministries resident or client).
The program is 15-week course made up of 12 training modules and a 3-week externship at a local restaurant. Students receive real life, fast-paced training from our knowledgeable chef instructors. Our goal is to prep students in the skill of culinary arts so that they can become self-sufficient and positive members of our community. Upon graduation, each trainee has gained the experience and ability to seek and maintain long-term employment.
More job training opportunities coming soon.
