Among the top 50 metropolitan areas in the United States, the Twin Cities contains the second-highest unemployment rate for African Americans and the highest racial disparity rate, with African Americans three times more likely to be unemployed than whites, according to the Economic Policy Institute. The lack of employment, compounded with a lack of employable skills, can result in serious long-term consequences for individuals, families, and communities. By equipping low-income adults of color with job training, skills, and support with its Core Program, Twin Cities RISE! (TCR!) addresses these inadequacies, fosters lasting self-sufficiency for underskilled workers, and benefits the economy as a whole.
The Twin Cities RISE! Core Program presents its participants with an average of 1218 months of personal-empowerment training, one-on-one coaching, customized work-skills instruction, internships, and employment-placement services. With more than 30 courses covering basic-education and individual-vocation skills, students gradually can attain the writing, math, computer, or test-support skills needed to obtain a position that pays at least $20,000 annually. Since attendance is essential to the success of students, so is transportation, and TCR! enables individuals in good standing to attend its classes and coaching sessions with free bus passes. TCR! expects to distribute 1,832 bus passes in 2011, and perhaps more with the help of outside donations.
Join G-Team and donate $5 to equip participants in the Twin Cities RISE! program with round-trip transportation to their training sessions. If G-Team members raise $150, 30 underskilled workers will be able to attend job-training classes and coaching sessions. Each additional $5 will allow one participant to travel to and from the training for one day.
