Some solutions provided by the program include:

Opening opportunities for development and mastery of skills as well as for continuous training and education that will prepare the individuals for their actual work.

Leading community members to career pathways that are identified through their strengths, interests, abilities, and other factors.

Creating work environments for hands-on practical training and assisting community members in finding suitable jobs.
