Oishei gives $100K grant for jobs program

Business First of Buffalo reported that a new foundation grant will allow three local nonprofit organizations to create a collaborative jobs program.

The $100,000 two-year grant from the John R. Oishei Foundation to Goodwill Industries of Western New York supports the "Parks Careers Pathways Collaboration."

The program is a collaborative effort between Goodwill Industries, the Buffalo City Mission and the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy.

The program is intended to offer training and career exploration opportunities at Olmsted Parks for individuals referred by the other two agencies. Individuals will come through Goodwill's Assessment and Evaluation Clinic and the Mission's long-term recovery programs. Read more here.

Constant individual and organizational learning is unavoidable to cope with swiftly changing business scenarios. Executives are required to manage increasing complexity, risk and pressure at a faster pace than ever before.
Therefore executive assessment should be performed under some demanding circumstances as opposed to a few interviews.
