Workforce Development

If you're struggling to make ends meet, trying to balance 2 or 3 part-time jobs or having trouble finding work altogether, our Workforce Development program can help you get back on track.

Get Started

We offer four Pathways to Success (PTS) bridge programs—Healthcare, Manufacturing, Supply Chain Logistics and Technology—to provide you with basic skills training and preparation to apply for enrollment in an affiliate trade school or training program* and advance your career:

Healthcare Healthcare
SCL Workshops  



    Average wage of program graduates who are placed in healthcare jobs 



    Community residents receiving hands-on technology instruction and/or access



The Trust  City Colleges of Chicago Women Empowered

About the Career Foundations Curriculum

How do you encourage adult students who never earned a high school diploma to view Adult Education as a program that leads to real opportunity? The Career Foundations: Making Your Education Work for You curriculum helps students who read at a 4th grade level or above or who speak limited English assess their skills and interests, explore career paths, and craft a plan to get them to college.

* Upon completing our program, you may then be able to transfer credit hours to one of our partner advanced training institutions (acceptability of transfer credit is up to the receiving institution; admission/enrollment is also at the discretion of the institution, according to their eligibility/suitability criteria).

Erie Neighborhood House is approved to operate by the Private Business and Vocational Schools Division of the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Erie Neighborhood House is not accredited by a US Department of Education recognized accrediting body.
