The Workplace Success program was started in 2006 to provide job skills training and volunteer placement for the New Hampshire Employment Program. Clients in this program are trying to re-enter the workforce while supporting their families and are receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

The program provides classroom and computer training as part of its Service Bureau activities. Additionally, the program staff provides clients with volunteer job placements throughout Strafford County and provides support and liaison services.

Workplace Success also administers On-The-Job Training contracts for employers who decide to hire these volunteers, and these contracts can provide up to $3,500 per employee in training reimbursements. We are an equal opportunity provider and employer.

Qualification Guidelines and/or Checklists:
Eligible clients must be receiving TANF benefits and participation is by referral only from the New Hampshire Employment Program.

Workplace Success Testimonial

Through our Workplace Success Program, Amanda found the support and training she needed to gain employment experience and ultimately a fulfilling full-time job.
She came to the program in the fall of 2011 and thanks to the assessment testing was able to participate in a couple of different Work Experience Programs at local businesses. It took some time to not only find the right fit but an open position. "I thought I wanted to work in child care, but I quickly realized that was not for me. But this program gives you that experience and let's you try it out."
One of her workplace experiences led to an office assistant position at a local childcare center in June of 2015. "It's very satisfying. I work in the office and help the executive director with fundraising. I like it a lot."
But as Amanda says, it was more than an employment program. "These really are people who care about you," she says. "They were very supportive and helped me so much. They were there with anything I needed."
