Inspiring G-Style, Inc.

CAUSE AWARENESS

Multiple barriers and systemic challenges prevent the low-income, homeless, ex-offenders, unemployed, and individuals lacking a high school diploma or G.E.D. from obtaining and retaining sustainable employment.  The national (2018) unemployment rate is 3.9%; however, according to the local unemployment statistic data (July 2018), the state of Maryland has an unemployment rate of 4.3%.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (August 2018), the unemployment rate for the Washington, DC area is 5.6% in comparison to the State of Virginia’s unemployment rate of 3.1%.  Something more is needed to bring the unemployment rate to zero and we are rising to the challenge!  We assist low-income, unemployed, at-risk, and disadvantaged individuals in the community by teaching the importance of self-empowerment, the importance of outstanding employability skills and how these credentials can secure better paying jobs and laying the foundation that leads to upward mobility and economic self-sufficiency.  Our training programs are designed to enhance self-confidence and set individuals on a positive path forward while driving home the importance of developing critical thinking skills that are required to be successful in today’s work force.

Inspiring G-Style, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that provides workforce development, employability training services and life skills training, with integrative supportive pre- and post-employment job placement services.  Our programs and services integrate solutions to address barriers that impede employment retention, such as the lack of emotional supportive pre- and post-placement supportive services, self-esteem and self-confidence issues, a lack of social interaction skills, and the inability to form positive relationships.  We use a hybrid approach to our workforce development training that embraces several components of the WorkAdvance Model (2016) and the lessons learned from the National Fund for Workforce Solutions brief (2013).
