People Helping People (PHP) offers educational workshops every other Saturday. We break them down into two categories: Flexible Thinking and Employment Foundations. Flexible Thinking workshops are about getting into the mindset of a full-time, primary earner. Employment Foundation workshops focus on employment tools, job search, and the application process.
Flexible Thinking Workshops include Commitment and Attitude, Critical Connection, Barrier Breakthrough, and If You're Going to Play Make It Pay. Employment Foundation Workshops include Resumes That Sell, Stepping Up Standing Out, During the Interview, Getting a Job is a Full Time Job, and Difference Between a Job and Career.
