The Entrepreneurial Training provided by REEL US can help people in recovery find a new sense of self-worth and purpose by providing them with the skills and resources to start their own businesses. (To visit the REEL US website, click here.)
“There’s an abundance of talent within the recovery community,” says Fletcher Group Director of Employment Services Lori Baier. “And one of the key ways to tap into it is through professional entrepreneurial training.”
A Joint Effort
Partnering together, the Fletcher Group, the Southeast Kentucky Economic Development Corporation (SKED), and the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program (EKCEP) have developed a new workforce development model that can be applied anywhere.
Make It Happen!
The Fletcher Group/SKED/EKCEP partnership is happy to help recovery home operators explore training options and collaborate with local economic development agencies, workforce boards, small business associations, and local academic entities such as community and junior colleges.
