Olenick Announces Partnership With Casa Central
Olenick is happy to announce our new partnership with Casa Central: the largest Hispanic Social Service Agency in the Midwest.
Casa Central works to strengthen their community through a network of social services benefiting vulnerable, underserved individuals.
Casa central is made up of a multitude of programs providing assistance such as learning programs for Children and Youth, assistance for individuals and families experiencing homelessness, to home care assistance and a wellness center for Senior Citizens helping to keep them connected through fun and therapeutic activities.
Olenick had the pleasure of working with Casa Central’s La Posada program – which supports families experiencing homelessness by providing interim housing and case management support, in addition to job readiness training through their EDUCATE program. Their EDUCATE program focuses on providing bi-lingual support for pre-employment skills, basic computer skills, hotel hospitality basics, English as a second language, and GED prep.
In line with their pre-employment training, Olenick provided support to La Posada’s EDUCATE program conducting mock interviews with on the spot feedback for individuals preparing for upcoming job-interviews. Each participant received helpful feedback as well as tips for navigating questions and for representing their best selves. All feedback from each interview used to help shape the next steps in their training with EDUCATE. Each candidate walked out feeling more confident in their skills and prepared to knock out their interviews!
We look forward to continuing to work with well-rounded candidates that are taking the necessary steps to gain employment for a brighter future and could not be more excited to grow our partnership with Casa Central.
