Offender Workforce Development (Employment Program)

Through collaboration with VABIR,  a CJC-based employment specialist helps job seekers with criminal records develop the skills and resources they need to gain employment.  This program helps people who are currently under supervision and have been released from prison in the last 1 to 2 years, and it facilitates placement by working closely with local businesses and employers.

Offender Workforce Development (OWD) meetings are held every Tuesday from 10:00am to 11:00am and are open to both men and women.  There is also a women’s only meeting every Tuesday from 11:30am to 12:30pm.  These meeting are held at the Burlington CJC located at 200 Church Street in Burlington. At these meetings individuals will receive weekly job listings/job leads, general job search support, help with interviewing, resumes, cover letters and much more.  After the meeting there is opportunity to schedule a one on one meeting to get more individualized assistance.
