Center for Employment Opportunities VISTA (Harrisburg)

Americorps New York, NY
The Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) is dedicated to providing immediate, effective, and comprehensive employment services to men and women with recent criminal convictions. Our highly structured and tightly supervised programs help participants regain the skills and confidence needed for successful transitions to stable, productive lives. CEO's vision is that anyone with a recent criminal history who wants to work has the preparation and support needed to find a job and to stay connected to the labor force. CEO will place one AmeriCorps VISTA Member who will serve for a full year at the organization's Harrisburg office. The VISTA will leverage cash and in-kind donations, develop new community partnerships, and conduct research for program innovation and improvement.
