SOME CET 'Graduates' First Class; SOME Center for Employment Training Grads Receive Jobs From Xerox Corporation.
Xerox Corporation formed an early unique, partnership with SOME to ensure the students would receive relevant training experiences. Ten other local and national businesses have also joined SOME CET in providing training services and employment though the SOME CET's Industrial Advisory Board.
For 29 years, SOME has responded to the needs of the homeless. Beginning as a soup kitchen, SOME has expanded to include over 20 different programs targeting the problems experienced by vulnerable District residents. SOME CET is SOME's latest program. It seeks to promote the human development and education of low-income people by providing them with the marketable skills and support services necessary for economic self-sufficiency.
SOME CET provides five to seven months of training in one of two skill areas: Building Maintenance and Repair, and Computer and Office skills. SOME will be adding Certified Nursing Assistant instruction in March to further expand skills offered to students. In addition to learning fundamentals to complete job tasks, the SOME CET program is designed to develop work ethic and other human development skills essential to maintaining a job.
