In 2015, Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta (LVA) started a pilot project with a volunteer stationed at the Augusta Career Center twice a month. Our contact at the Career Center, a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor II, had told us; “This is truly great news for consumers in the Augusta Area seeking assistance with job and career searches as well as serving as a resource for those needing assistance with State requirements for unemployment and other services.” While our hope was to carry on our tradition of being a collaborative community partner in supporting learners, this endeavor did not prove successful due to schedule issues and that often those using the career center had limited time to engage in additional opportunities.
LVA, however, wants individuals using Career Center services to know that LVA is available to anyone finding challenges in applying for benefits, completing resumes or seeking educational assistance. Please just give us a call at 207-626-3440 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to assign a tutor to help.
The Augusta Career Center is located at 21 Enterprise Drive, Suite 2, Augusta, ME. See more information and directions on the Augusta Career Center web page.
