Bridging the Gap students celebrate, train for careers


CATC Bridging the Gap students and their families celebrated completion of the school-year portion of the workforce development program with a party at CATC. Then, they continued career training at Cincinnati Works, where they earned certificates and the opportunity to start in-depth training for  careers in health care, manufacturing and banking. Training continues during the summer. Job interviews begin early fall with CATC employer partners who know that Bridging the Gap graduates receive the kinds of life skills, work skills, and professional training their organizations need.
