Living Our Faith Missions
The Mission of the Month for October is Just Bakery. Just Bakery is a 16 week educational and vocational training program. The program works with individuals who are experiencing significant barriers to employment (homelessness, criminal conviction history, lack of education, and/or a lack of work history or skills) and who have an interest in baking or culinary arts as a career pathway.
Program graduates can also take an exam to earn a Certificate of Training from the WI Baker’s Association and through an agreement with Madison College, students can earn college credit. In addition to their coursework, students also receive case management andassistance with job placement and retention, and job coaching.
