Career ServicesSkills Enhancement and Career Training Programs
The Social Development Commission (SDC) Career Services offers programs that help Milwaukee County residents create a pathway to fulfilling work that leads them out of poverty. Our programs help people develop skills that companies value. Important skills that allow individuals to be successful and find jobs that do more than pay the bills. In addition, participants graduate with certifications that help them stand out in the workplace.
At the beginning of 2021, Milwaukee’s unemployment rate reached nearly 5 percent. The U.S. Census Bureau also reported over 25% of people in Milwaukee are living in poverty.
We offer solutions.
