Heritage Training and Career Center (HTCC) is an existing and fully operational 501 (C) (3) community-based organization providing innovative solutions to the community through the training of economically disadvantaged individuals who are in the mainstream of Alabama’s public support system. HTCC provides training and assistance for low-income individuals who lack adequate skills to achieve economic independence as well as to provide a comprehensive program to promote self-sufficiency through training, work experience, supportive services and job placement in unsubsidized employment. The typical Job Readiness student has had very little work experience. With limited skills as to how to look for a job, they may not understand what their interest and abilities are. Through this training they develop the skills needed to find, acquire and maintain employment. This includes properly completing job applications, writing an effective resume, how to have a successful interview, social skills development, getting along well with others and the development of other skills so he or she can compete effectively in the workplace. Never have I seen individuals more concerned and dedicated to helping young people reach and live up to their potential.
