Workforce Development

McGruder Family Resource Center offers four job-training programs that teach people the skills they need to secure employment in high-demand industries.

  • The Sewing Training Academy teaches sewing skills for the fashion and textiles industries.
  • The Hospitality Job Training Program teaches housekeeping skills for work in hotels or to create a small house-cleaning business. Our classroom simulates a hotel room.
  • Bilingual Banker Training provides training for entry-level banking center positions for people able to speak Spanish and other languages.
