Project ECHO offers PA CareerLink Access and Life Development Mentoring Series
WEST PHILADELPHIA ? MAY, 2003 ? After much anticipation, Turning the TIDE, a ministry of Taylor Tabernacle, will launch Project ECHO and other new programs during an open house on Saturday, May 17th; 10:00am to 2:00pm. Project ECHO will provide much needed assistance to ex-offenders for finding employment and dealing with real life issues after serving their term. Through the use of the technology center, Project ECHO can deliver career training, and mentoring for life-changing development. We are inviting all residents of West and Southwest Philadelphia to share in the event. Attendees will include: Pastor Lucille Ford, other local pastors and political officials from West Philadelphia, representatives from the Mayor?s Office of Faith-based Initiatives, Philadelphia Workforce Investment Board, PA CareerLink, and Corporate Sponsors. We will have food and door prizes. During the open house, attendees will be able to tour the new technology center, meet the TIDE volunteer teachers, meet our TIDE corporate sponsors and most importantly sign-up for classes. The computer center is located at 427 South 61st Street, on the corners of 61st Street and Osage Avenue.
