Career Advancement, Retention, and Empowerment (CARE)

Since 2014, Seedco has worked with young adults ages 18-24 in New York City through the Youth Advancing in the Workplace (YAW) program to enter the workforce world, become more independent, and plan for their futures. Through this work, Seedco has identified the benefit of supporting employers by being a resource for their employees including reducing the costs associated with turnover.

Out of YAW, Seedco has developed the Career Advancement, Retention, and Empowerment or CARE program. CARE provides support and resource to employees, jobseekers, and employers by taking a dual approach.

1. Seedco partners with employers to help their employees overcome challenges to staying in their jobs and becoming more engaged at work.

2. Seedco partners with workforce development and other social service programs to assist young adult job seekers find, sustain, and advance in employment.

CARE is currently funded by The Pinkerton Foundation and the Ira W. DeCamp Foundation

West Baltimore Career Pathways Collaborative

Seedco’s West Baltimore Career Pathways Collaborative engages local employers, service providers, and correctional agencies in establishing career pathways for individuals coming out of the criminal justice system. By helping individuals find a job and establish a path for advancement, Seedco improves their chances of successfully integrating into their communities and staying out of prison.

Since 2015, our program implements training and placement around locally in-demand sectors, including manufacturing and construction, and integrates:

  • access to training, education, and career development services;
  •  case management to address life issues that are barriers for success; and
  • job placement to connect participants in long-term, well-paying jobs

A key partner in outreach and service delivery is Bon Secours Community Works. Other local partners in the West Baltimore CPC include the Maryland Department of Public Safety & Correctional Services, the Baltimore Workforce Investment Board, the Mayor’s Office of Human Services – ReEntry Division, and Job Opportunities Task Force. The US Department of Labor funds this program.

Re-entering into Society to Excel
