I am currently a student of the S.O.M.E. Center For Employment Training. This is an awesome program for people to come and get vocational training or enhance the skills that they already possess. The courses offered are Medical Administration, Building Maintenance, and Businiss and Customer Relations. I believe that the students are at an advantage because we recieve hands on instruction from someone who has actually worked in the field that they are teaching. We are very fortunate to have a staff of caring and sincere people who work very hard every day to give 100 percent of their time and effort to each and every student. We have human development that tackle problems in certain behaviors, habits and mindsets, career development that prepare students for the workplace by way of creating resumes and other employee documents, interviewing techniques, and how to seek employment through differnet venues, student services such as barrier reduction to make sure that there are no obstacles to stand in the way to hinder the success of the students. The Center For Employment Training focus on the "whole person" individually. I would recommend this program to anyone that need it.
In the fall of last year I receieved information about So Other's Might Eat Center For Employment Training. At first I put it out of my mind; but with the recession I could not afford to continue my education so I called and found out the first step in becoming a student at CET and the rest is history. I Have never loved going to school as much as I did when I was enrolled at CET. I thank God for all that I learned, the people that I met and the life lessons that I still carry with me.
I have donated to SOME for years. Yes, they provide many, many meals to hungry people in the Washington, DC area. Yet they have addressed many other needs like health care and housing! Several years ago, I was delighted to learn that they had helped someone I knew, and the help made a life changing difference.
I know many of the people who work at SOME. All are great people who love what they do and really want to help others.
I've worked with SOME on a professional basis over the past eight years in helping to promote the thanksgiving walk for hunger. a wonderful, spirited, genuinely caring group of people. My church is also involved with some in the "chili making" project. It really has taught my children over the years - as they make chili- to include the less fortunate in their thoughts and prayers. Very proud to be associated with them.
