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

Ashley L. started with Workplace Success in April of 2011. She was first to a local community center and then a local church.
Ashley wanted to try her hand at healthcare support and was assigned to Riverside Rest Home in February of 2013. Under the direction of the volunteer coordinator, Ashley learned the routine and found her calling. Ashley requested and was approved for LNA training in May of 2013.
Her work at the nursing home caught the attention of the administrator, who provided her with a letter confirmation saying Ashley would be hired once her LNA was achieved. By May of 2014, that goal was achieved and Ashley started her new job as an LNA at Riverside.
