P2E: Putting the Long-Term Unemployed Back To Work

Commitment by

The WorkPlace

In 2013, The WorkPlace committed to scale the Platform to Employment (P2E) pilot program to Seattle, Washington in order to help the city prepare the long-term unemployed for re-entry into employment. The scaling will incorporate confidence building and emotional support programming as well as skills training for Seattle's workforce development partnerships and activities. These efforts will help eliminate the risk employers may face when hiring the long-term unemployed. The WorkPlace will provide tailored technical assistance for planning, program design and project management, while meeting employers' need for skilled workers.
