Meet Maudeline. Through the NFJP program, she gained training in Telamon MD’s culinary arts program. Married with six children, Maudeline aspired to work as a cook at the local hospital, and Telamon helped her work toward that goal. A mere two years ago, she felts as if she was destined to spend her entire life working on a farm. Empowered by on-the-job training and classroom skill-building sessions provided by Telamon, Maudeline is now well on her way toward the bright future she envisions. “To be in the NFJP program…is the most important step someone can take towards their dream. I feel like I have a bright future ahead of me! I can now support my family. I can now support my children. I cannot wait to graduate and start working.”
Telamon-TRC’s Workforce & Career Services encompasses a broad array of customized work readiness and job skill training programs, focusing on helping farmworkers, veterans, and youth who seek to build skills and career paths. Work readiness and job skill development are often supplemented by language services (ESL), educational support (GED) and includes one-on-one counseling, group workshops and supportive services.
