Workforce Development Program

Are you interested in trying something new in your Vincentian ministry in addition to providing direct services to neighbors in need? How about offering a career path towards self-sufficiency to those who are willing and able to commit to our new workforce development strategy? St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee is taking a broader approach beyond Back2Work - coordinated by Pedro Mercado, Workforce Development Coordinator, (414) 667-0602 or pmercado@svdpmilw.orgHe will be your contact between our Neighbors in Need and the whole Workforce Development and Supportive Services Systems. To the extent Mentors can be recruited and supported by the creation of a Special Works Workforce Conference, Back2Work can be reactivated. 


Conference Members requirements:

  • Offer this workforce opportunity and make a referral to Pedro via ServWare
  • Follow up to assure a connection is made
  • Consider being a Mentor to this Neighbor

Neighbors' requirements are:

  • Complete an application
  • Determine your strengths and area that need improvement, (assessment)
  • Show up on time for appointments
  • Develop and carry out your own career plan (education training, employment)
  • Work with a Mentor at least once weekly, if you are in Back2Work Progr
