Williamsburg Technical College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Department is offering a SNAP2Work Employment and Training program in order to provide job training and retention pointers.
The SNAP part of SNAP2Work stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which is a program for individuals who are receiving food stamps and who are seeking employment. SNAP2Work teaches job search tools for success such as resume writing, interview skills, and career testing; how to seek in the right places and make connections to help find a job; education, reading and writing skills to prepare one for the job market; vocational training to upgrade skills to meet labor market requirements; and job retention services to help one keep a job once it is obtained.
Requirements to participate in the SNAP2Work program include registering for work, being at least 18 years of age but under 50 years of age; and having no dependents.
People who are not qualified for participation include persons under 18 years of age or over 50 years of age; students enrolled at least half-time; persons receiving unemployment insurance payments; persons responsible for the care of an incapacitated person; persons who are pregnant or physically or mentally unable to work; persons who have a dependent child under 18 years of age; and persons who are employed and working at least 20 hours per week.
