There is Hope
The Joseph Project 863 is a volunteer mentoring program that provides assistance to low income workers, under - unemployed individuals and newly graduating high school students. Many citizens currently are ineligible for services through the traditional social service avenues. Our project will provide a hand-up via training scholarships and supportive services to those who could not participate otherwise.
We have cultivated partners with local employers, businesses and social service agencies in Hendry and Glades counties that include and surround Clewiston Florida. This partnership will be the foundation for services. The grant Funding will be the "hand-up" - or opportunity- for those that are not eligible for assistance through our partners at Career Source SWFL due to the many eligibility requirements tied to the funding.

Our mission is to encourage and support our citizens who have been so greatly affected by the automation of local industry which cost so many their jobs and lifestyles. Our goal is to open opportunities for citizens who have a desire to retool their careers to be more applicable for the job market of today, by supplying funding for ambitious residents to attend trade schools that will meet the needs of local industry.
We understand that the era of the general laborer is quickly fading and the Joseph Project 863 - Jobs Project will help retool our citizens to meet the needs of our business community today and into the future.
