Barriers and expenses
The team at SWD comes from a diverse group of Kansas citians, of different backgrounds, race and ethnicities. As a policy, we do not discriminate people based on different religion, genders, ethnicities, disabilities and sexual orientations. We have a fair and equal representation of demographics in our team and the people we serve.
Whether we call it soft skills or rather Social Survival Skills. We offer in-depth and 30 hours of intense seminars based on career development, emotional quotient and social navigation skills.
Throughout these classes we have Employers come in and give our students 'tips and job leads'. We also have luncheon classes, where we feed the students, all the while they are being coached on job retention and professional ethics and expectations.
SWD is associated with Builders Association, Carpenters Union, Painters Union, Non Union Contractors and Minority contractors to rebuild a trained workforce, to help train and employ our target beneficiaries with opportunities in the construction industries.
Another aspect of SWD is as a recruiter. We reach out to people, train them and make sure they are employed. Everyone is welcome to call us, set an appointment online and email us. We have around a 100 employers in our list that we help get them vetted candidates. Our vision "Where Opportunity Meets Potential" is verily what we do - find those gems in the realm of employment. Our Job is to be that resource for those who do not know how to navigate the world of employment and career development.
