Employment education classes to start Jan. 17

Morningside Services will conduct Eye on Empowerment courses

OLYMPIA — Morningside Services will conduct Eye on Empowerment courses in Port Angeles and Sequim beginning in January and running weekly through June.

The Port Angeles course is from 2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Mondays from Jan. 17 through June 13 at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

The Sequim classes are from 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. Thursdays from Jan. 20 through June 16 in the Shipley Center, 921 E. Hammond St., Sequim.

The free course is designed for anyone seeking employment, especially those who may have dropped out of the workforce and those who, perhaps, never worked outside the home.

Modules in the program include money management, person-centered plans, self-advocacy, soft skills, navigation services and internships as well as portfolios and resumes.

A fall schedule of classes is planned to begin in September.

For more information, call Melissa Cantu at 360-406-5000 or email [email protected].
