Pathways to Employment Growth
Pathways to Employment Growth (PEG) prepares lower Fairfield County residents for careers in the growing health care industry. Funded by a grant awarded to the State of Connecticut by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, PEG helps ensure that local residents receive the resources, support, and training needed to obtain in-demand jobs in the health care sector. Family Centers will also collaborate with a variety of employer, training and community partners to create a direct pipeline to local health care employment opportunities.
Health care remains one of the largest sectors in Connecticut’s economy. Nurses, aides, technicians, and support staff in medical billing, coding, Information Technology and housekeeping are in high demand. PEG works with future health care job seekers to determine their career goals and connect them with the resources needed to achieve them. Training stipends, and access to transportation, technology, childcare and other wrap-around supports are also available.
Thanks to a partnership with Norwalk Community College, PEG participants will have access to a variety of industry-recognized health care trainings and certifications based on their skills and aptitude. Upon completion, Stamford Health and Yale New Haven Health have committed to interviewing PEG participants and consider them for future employment.
Community partners include Charter Oak Communities, Vita Health & Wellness District and the Stamford Partnership.
PEG is open to all residents of lower Fairfield County and is offered at no cost. For more information or to enroll, contact program manager Darian Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
