Rural Minnesota CEP Inc. has funds and services available for school district employees through the Minnesota Dislocated Workers Program. The program is designed to help people who have lost their jobs find new employment.
"The goal is to help people get back to work in quality jobs," Craig Nathan, WorkForce Center manager, said.
Services, which are available at no cost, include career planning, personal counseling, training for jobs, job-seeking workshops, placement services and financial support to help cover the expenses of training or job-seeking.
Rural Minnesota CEP can help if a worker's skills are not easily transferable, if there is a decline in the market demand for those skills or if there is a lack of jobs with earnings at a level comparable to the previous position.
Rural Minnesota CEP is working with school districts in scheduling meetings to inform school employees of available benefits. Services are available on a walk-in basis at the center at 204 Laurel St. or by calling (800) 664-3595.
