Open Door Ministries of High Point began a partnership with Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) in August 2011 to help low income and homeless individuals develop their skills and obtain employment through the Education and Job Readiness Program (EJRP).

Impact

The Employment Job Readiness Program offers biweekly workshops on employment skills including resume writing, job searching, interview skills, and money management. Instructors are provided by Guilford Technical Community College. Workshops are offered every other Monday - Thursday 8:30am - 11:30am and are available to the public. The EJRP works closely with area employers as well as NCWORKS to assist residents in obtaining gainful employment that will aid in obtaining permanent housing.
