Congratulations to Our 2019 Cycle 1 PEP Graduates!

The Bread for the City family would like to congratulate the 19 new graduates of our Pre-Employment Program!

PEP helps BFC clients develop the skills necessary to secure and retain employment. PEP accomplishes through a four-tiered approach: job readiness workshops, case management, life skills coaching, and job placement.

Once our PEP clients reach graduation, they enter our workforce development program to put their new skills into action. We help connect graduates with job opportunities, and we even offer paid internships for graduates right here at Bread for the City. Last year, 71% of PEP graduates found work, or entered an educational/job training program.

Six of our new grads have found employment with another headed to school to become an electrician.
