The Growing Rural Independence Together Through Jobs (GRIT) Project builds hope in rural Ohio by contributing to the economic prosperity of the region. This project supports youth and adults who are unemployed or underemployed in getting the education, training, and tools needed to obtain living-wage and rewarding jobs within their communities.
As a collective group of schools, nonprofit agencies, treatment facilities, courts, OhioMeansJobs Centers and volunteers, we are working to find you the skills needed to secure employment in your community. Through the GRIT resources and assessments, we can help you find a path forward, make a career transition or update your skills for an in-demand job.
Participants complete the Future Plans assessment which is a comprehensive tool that measures interests, aptitudes, and work values which tie directly to in-demand, financially stable career paths.
Clients that are enrolled in the GRIT program work closely with a Career Coach who helps interpret results, conduct personal reflection, and develop a career plan that involves a training and education plan.
The SPARK Program and GRIT Project are a collaborative partnership working to help participants achieve future success!
"Thanks to GRIT, I've managed to find my footing- both financially and as an individual. I finally feel like I have a plan that I can accomplish."
