Back by popular demand, our club welcomed six local job seekers to our meeting on October 3. Partners for Work is a program that unites Rotary clubs with social service agencies to increase employment outcomes for adults with developmental disabilities. The program supplied the materials for the Mock Interview session, social service agencies brought the job seekers, and our business-savvy Rotarians did the rest.

“The job seekers picked up some important interview techniques,” commented Heidi Johnson, Employment Specialist with Easterseals Washington. “And more than that, they left with boosted confidence and some job leads,” Johnson concluded.
With most businesses struggling with recruiting and retaining employees, preparing people who want to work, but have some challenges, makes great sense. The Silverdale Rotary Club is honored to promote inclusion in our community, and to motivate clubs around the world to do the same.
