Professional Development Series

“Career Gear has helped me with job retention and is continuing to help me with any obstacles that pop up in my every day life. I am grateful to Career Gear and the staff. I am glad that there is a place like this that men like me can come and receive guidance, support and help that we desperately need. Thank you.” James, Career Gear Client


Professional Development Series

The Professional Development Series provides skills that focus on the professional and emotional state of the participants who are engaging in life-changing experiences. The curriculum of the program is divided into four main developmental categories: employment, finances, parenting and life balance. Examples of workshops include Interview Tips & Skills, Credit Repair, Conflict Resolution and Men’s Health.

As a group program, the Professional Development Series provides an environment that promotes participation, discussion, accountability, networking and support. Sessions are held in the evenings and are facilitated by professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to provide meaningful experiences to all participants. The program is divided into two phases, and placement is determined by participation, skill level, commitment and the review of data.

Success within the Professional Development Series is determined through the reporting from Quality of Life surveys, which are administered to all participants.

If you would like information on how to participate in or facilitate one of our workshops please contact Director of Programs, Oscar Prado.
