Job Training

Since 2002, Growing Home has cultivated the ground in service of its primary social mission: a job training and transitional employment program for individuals motivated to reenter the workforce. Interns in the program receive a fair wage while learning transferrable job skills in Landscaping/Horticulture, Food Service, or Customer Service tracks. Fieldwork is supplemented by classroom time, in which program participants learn basic workplace etiquette and life skills like job searching, interviewing, communication and conflict resolution, computer use, personal finance, and healthy living. Growing Home has been enduringly successful in its mission to prepare individuals for the workforce, to date supporting over 250 Chicagoans as they have transformed their lives.
