Employment Coaching

A good-paying job is essential to a stable life. Thrive DC helps individuals find secure employment through one-on-one coaching and our Real Opportunity Training program.
“Thrive DC provided the job training, the motivation and the sense of hope I needed to get back into work. They took a genuine interest in my well-being.”

-LeWayne, Thrive DC client

Real Job Training. Real Opportunity.

Thrive DC works with individuals who are facing major barriers to employment such as homelessness, a long history of joblessness, substance abuse, or felony convictions by training them for a new culinary career.

Our Real Opportunity Training Program (Real Opps) is designed to help clients jump-start their culinary careers while providing mentorship throughout the process.

Real Opps is designed for the individual who wants to make a real change in their lives, and therefore clients must be committed to the program for 18 weeks. To support that commitment, Thrive DC provides a small stipend to all participants. Near the end of training, clients will also have the opportunity to test for a Food Handler’s License.

For those who complete the program, achieving their goals is very possible!

Individualized Employment Support

Thrive DC provides one-on-one support for clients who need help finding stable employment. From cover letter and resumes, to mock interviews, to workplace communication skills -- our staff members equip clients to find and keep a good-paying job.

For clients who have skills and only need help looking for a job, we offer a computer lab that individuals can use to tweak their resume, apply to jobs, and access email. We also offer job fairs periodically to help clients network with local employers.
