Our Reading Comprehension and Math Instruction courses prepare trainees to pass Apprenticeship Training Program and Employer Entry Asessments.


Our Career Services Program assists trainees in passing individual and case interviews, identification of a career path,  preparation of an Individual Career Plan and professional resume.

Life Skills

Our Evidence-Based Life Skills Training Program provides trainees with independent living skills, self-advocacy skills, character education and classes on financial wellness.

Trade Skills

Our Trade-Skills Programs help trainees become familiar with the tools of the trade via hands-on projects.  Trainees also acquire nationally recognized industry certifications.


Everyone of us should be able to provide for ourselves and our families—to earn a decent living at a decent wage. Yet, oftentimes, there are so many barriers to obtaining employment or pursuing a career, that no matter how badly we want to pursue this goal, it is difficult without some assistance. 


That's where GRACE comes in. We look at apprenticeship and employer requirements item by item, and then work closely with the trainees in our programs to assist them in meeting every single one.

"The training I received at GRACE, and prior to that, participating in the Foundation's Youth Works programs, prepared me well for IECs Math Assessment, Interview, and Apprenticeship Training Program."
