Seedco Awarded Second “Training to Work” Grant from U.S. Department of Labor, Focused on West Baltimore

Seedco and its partner Bon Secours Community Works have been awarded $1.36 million over three years through a U.S. DOL Training to Work 3 – Adult Reentry grant to lead the creation of the West Baltimore, Maryland Career Pathways Collaborative (WBCPC). Over the next 39 months, this collaboration will develop and implement career pathways for men and women nearing release from state prison, and/or under Home Confinement, who are eligible for and/or enrolled in Work Release Programs. Seedco, Bon Secours Community Works, and their WBCPC partners will:

– Prepare participants for career pathways in local demand sectors by providing access to training, education, job placement and career development services;
– Address basic needs and life issues that are barriers for success; and
– Place participants in long-term, well-paying jobs.

Seedco is a current Training to Work 3 grantee in Memphis, Tennessee and is thrilled to begin this important work with its partners in West Baltimore, Maryland.
