Over the last four years, Bend’s Community Center (BCC) has significantly expanded its job training program to where it now runs one of the largest training sites in Central Oregon for people trying to move off public assistance and/or gain work experience. BCC currently partners with COIC,
Job training can be for as little as 6 hrs per week up to 40 hrs per week and it depends entirely upon the individual needs and interests of the job trainee. In 2009, more than 200 adults and youth received job training at BCC. Together, these job training partners play an essential role at BCC – providing low-cost “staffing” to help run BCC programs and make the organization successful! Job training takes place at the original BCC building (1036 NE 5th).
