Training Futures

Investing in Talent, Investing in the Future

Training Futures is a nationally recognized workforce development program with proven results, providing training for living-wage professional office careers. It offers an innovative curriculum in a simulated office environment with two primary goals:

  • To help under- and unemployed adults secure professional careers with potential for advancement. Over 25 weeks, trainees learn technical skills (including Microsoft Office and business math), speaking and writing skills, how to function successfully in American corporate culture and much more. Trainees receive performance reviews and are expected to dress professionally, arrive on time, complete office assignments and interact professionally with staff and fellow trainees. Resume and interview preparation, as well as career research and job search techniques, are provided during and after the program.
  • To meet the needs of local employers who seek qualified, entry-level workers. Local employers have the opportunity each cycle to host an intern from Training Futures. Training Futures also provides free job matching services for employers who may wish to hire a qualified program graduate.

Training Futures was launched in 1996 and has since trained more than 2,000 people from diverse backgrounds and experience. Within six months of graduation, 89% of trainees secure full-time employment in an office environment. The employment rate of graduates far exceeds those of other national programs, placing Training Futures in the top-performing echelon.
