Square One's Learn & Earn program is proud to have the support of area businesses who are opening their doors to provide "hands on" training for young parents who are participating in our "Learn & Earn" education and workforce development programs.

Many of the participants are working toward earning their HiSET (High School Equivalency Testing program), as well as job-skills training and placement, while others are solely focused on building job-readiness skills and career development. The programs are being made possible with funding from the Regional Employment Board (REB) and most recently, the Community Foundation.

While these young parents attend classes at Square One, their children have the opportunity to attend our region's highest-quality early learning programs.

Thank you to Nadim's Mediterranean Restaurant for recently opening your kitchen to one of our participants who is pursuing a career in culinary arts. Brittany Goodman shadowed the lunchtime chefs at Nadim's, including Nadim himself!

Thank you, Nadim, for being such a great community partner!
