LCCAA Partners with OMJ for Getting Ahead

posted 1/10/20 -- LCCAA and OhioMeansJobs Lorain County invite you to find out what’s holding you back. The agencies have partnered for a special presentation of Getting Ahead in a Just Getting’ By World beginning Jan. 27.

In this group setting, participants are truly empowered to become financially secure and reach their personal goals. The program provides time and space for men and women to delve deeply into their lives to find strengths and identify their resources. It helps them face what advocates call “the tyranny of the moment” and avoid making emotional decisions.

As Client Services Coordinator Amy Steele puts it: “Getting ahead gets you to the point where you can say: ‘Wait. Let’s step back. Let’s take a breath.’ It allows you to see the bigger picture.”

The ten module curriculum will help build resources as the facilitator helps explore solutions and helping students with accountability, analyzing their situations, assessing their own resources and choosing a plan of action.

The class will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Jan. 27 through March 6 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. OhioMeansJobs Lorain County is at 42495 North Ridge Road, Elyria. Contact Amy Steele at 440-204-3121 or asteele@lccaa.net to register or learn more.
