Just because you’ve grown up, doesn’t mean you’ve outgrown the need for a helping hand.

Silver Spring Neighborhood Center offers adult education and employment assistance programs to help the adults we serve stand up for themselves and their families.

Employment Program

Silver Spring Neighborhood Center is one of four administrating agencies of Transform Milwaukee Jobs Program (TMJP).

Participants enrolled in TMJP are placed in subsidized jobs with local businesses within our collaborative network. After successfully completing six months or 1040 hours of subsidized work, participants gain unsubsidized jobs with their host employer or employment opportunities elsewhere.

Silver Spring Neighborhood Center supports each participant throughout the process by providing job coaching, assistance to address barriers (i.e. purchasing work uniforms and boots, paying for specialized training, etc.) and retention services.

TMJP staff work closely with community employers to maintain a strong relationship to create pathways for jobs with family sustaining wages.

Participants of the program must have spent at least one day in jail (criminal background), have not worked at least 4 calendar weeks, and can not be receiving W-2 or unemployment benefits.

 






Adult Services Pathways Program

The Adult Services Pathway Program provides job readiness training, career navigation and industry touring to unemployed men and women ages 18-45 living within 53218, 53223 and 53225 zip codes. Adult Services will provide participants with direct industry exposure and access that will assist them in identifying career choices that will lead to jobs.  For more info email us at pathways@ssnc-milw.org
