Workplace Education
is Back on Track!
Workplace Education has always been a priority at The Boston Home, with classes regularly offered in ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages), Computer Skills and HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) in partnership with Jewish Vocational Services (JVS). Last year, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic delayed some classes from completion. We are thrilled to report that classes have resumed and, thanks to a very generous donor, the staff participating in those classes have new laptops to help them complete their remote work! We could not be more proud of these staff members for their dedication to continuing education!
