This past month, we launched Towards Employment's Alumni Network. On Saturday, August 18, 50 graduates and friends showed up to learn about the potential of the network. We also acknowledged and celebrated Bloom staff members
moving on to new employment opportunities!
10 people pledged to vote this coming November, one person registered to vote when he learned that his felony did not preclude him from voting in Ohio, and we distributed many items from our clothing closet.
The highlight was the raffling off of tickets to a pre-season Brown's game, tickets donated by the Cleveland Browns.
The TE Alumni Network has several goals:
- new participant referral
- sharing community resources and success stories
- and encouraging graduates to take advantage of advancement opportunities and new programming at TE.
Next up is an alumni newsletter that will be released this month. Feedback from graduates and staff will make this network extra special. For more information, contact Bishara Addison at
