Our mission is to empower individuals to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through employment.

Towards Employment connects people to careers – helping them prepare, get, and keep a job; and then advance – in this way we change lives, advance business, and strengthen community.

We have over 40 years of experience successfully helping people gain the tools they need to find a job, navigate life's obstacles, and secure a path towards a long-term career.

We partner with over 300 local businesses who have confidence in our proven training programs and personal coaching to prepare new and current employees for career success.

We are a leading community-based workforce organization in Northeast Ohio, working to influence the wider system, regional economy, and local community through extensive expertise and trusted partnerships.
