Each quarter 4-5 People with Disabilities will learn the use of customer relationship management software & develop communication skills on the job, while supporting rebuilding homes in war zones.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
People with Disabilities represent the largest US minority; only 1/3 of those 18-64 are employed, though 2/3 of these would prefer to work. Salesforce knowledge highly sought in the SF Bay area, gives trainees vital work skills as they contribute to peacemaking by supporting speaking tours, community awareness campaigns and donor relationship management, for which we will provide a stipend. Community benefits economically by moving trainees into the workforce & socially by the outreach programs.
How will this project solve this problem?
Identify 5 People with Disabilities; Provide training in Customer Relationship Management Software; Develop communication skills on the job through e-mail & phone assignments to organize outreach events; Arrange meetings with potential employers.
Potential Long Term Impact
Since Salesforce is a web-based tool, we want to extend this pilot program for People with Disabilities in conflict zones to enable them to apply for web-based jobs & in the process help build our peacemaking capacity.
