Our mission:

To transform lives out of poverty through meaningful employment.

our vision:

A community of empowered individuals, especially men of color, who achieve long term job success to support their families.

THE PATHWAY OUT OF POVERTY INCLUDES A JOB, YET FOR MANY PEOPLE, MULTIPLE BARRIERS CAN STAND IN THE WAY OF EMPLOYMENT.

At TCR, we assist individuals in poverty on the path to long-term and stable employment. Our work skills training prepares participants with the skills they’ll need on the job. And through internship opportunities, job search assistance, and employment placement services, we work with participants to find meaningful employment. Our coaches provide one-on-one support, partnering with participants for a year after they’ve landed their new jobs. We focus on long term results – with 81% of our graduates staying at their jobs after one year, our 12-month job retention rates are nearly twice the national average. 

Our curriculum goes beyond teaching – through our signature Personal Empowerment program, we provide transformative change, fostering self-confidence and self-reliance.
