Auburn Gresham GOLD was proud to announce the job training program they plan to offer to parents this year. This new workforce development program is part of the Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation's two-generation (2GEN) education initiative, sponsored in part by the the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Auburn Gresham GOLD is teaming up with CVS Health, as the primary workforce partner. CVSHealth will provide parents with free job training to become certified Pharmacy Technicians and encourage parents in their journeys in obtaining new and solid career paths.

“The CVS Health vision is to be a cutting-edge leader in diverse employment, training and education programs," said Lena 

As this training program is new to Westcott School, Auburn Gresham GOLD also got a chance to get to know parents, students and staff of Westcott and casually talk to them about the program. The Wii was provided along with board games like, Chutes and Ladders, Monopoly, Apples to Apples, Bingo, Uno and more for the families. Food and beverages were provided and Affy Tapple treats to start the Halloween weekend.

Parents were also encouraged to speak briefly on their future goals to influence the young people in the room that no matter how many obstacles one may cross, we should never have to give up on our goals in life. The first family game night was a huge success and parents seemed more than enthused about the program.
