GMA is working with the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership to deliver a new workforce development center in Chatham.

This project includes the fit-out of a vacant building to create a full-service satellite workforce center.

Services may include: hiring events, job screening and placement, individualized career planning/coaching, digital literacy training/certification, financial literacy, resume creation and review, interviewing skills and occupational training.
