VCS ‘WorkStrides’ set for March 18-20

SMOKEY POINT — Village Community Services is offering its next “WorkStrides” seminars from Tuesday, March 18, through Thursday, March 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. all three days, in Suite 200 at 3210 Smokey Point Dr. in Arlington.

WorkStrides is offered free of charge to job seekers with disabilities, thanks to grants from the United Way of Snohomish County and the Zonta Club of Everett.

This three-day seminar is intended for adults with any types of disabilities that have been barriers to securing employment. Depression, PTSD or other mental health issues, as well as substance abuse or cognitive, learning or physical disabilities would all qualify.

WorkStrides also has room for one or two non-disabled participants who have likewise experienced barriers to employment, such as senior citizens, returning veterans, or recently divorced or otherwise single parents.

Participants must commit to attending all three days. To sign up, contact Jean Simpson by phone at 425-220-1963 or via email at simpsonj@villagecommunitysvcs.org.
