Job Trainings & Coaching

This training provides students with the basic banking skills (cash handling, customer service, counterfeit currency, check fundamentals, compliance, safety & security, 10 key, etc.) needed to start a career in the financial sector with a career growth path.  We also prioritize job readiness skills (professional portfolio, mock interviews, communication, online job search, interviewing techniques, etc.) and each student is required to attend a pre- and post-financial coaching session.

This training is a Lawrence Working Families Initiative (LWFI) collaboration between LCW and Lawrence Public Schools, Lawrence Adult Learning Center, Northern Essex Community College, MassHire and The Community Group.  It provides students with the basic skills needed to work in the school system as an Assistant Teacher and preparation to pass the ParaProfessional test required by the Lawrence Public Schools system.
