The City of Menifee in partnership with Riverside County Workforce Development has opened the Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center in the upgraded computer lab at the Kay Ceniceros Senior Center, 29995 Evans Rd.
The Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center is open by appointment only on Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., with plans later this fall to expand on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to provide additional service times for potential job seekers.
The center features a state-of-the-art computer lab staffed by Riverside County Workforce Development and is available for use for free to qualifying residents. The center provides job candidates with an array of services, including career coaching assistance, resume writing, job search assistance, specialty training, skills development, specialized recruitment events, and workshops.
Menifee is the first city in southwest Riverside County to pilot this program in partnership with Riverside County Workforce Development and offers a temporary remote workforce development center, a new and innovative program that enhances services, and wrap-around services to residents, versus the traditional permanent location strategy.
The Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center and updated computer lab were provided via the City of Menifee’s Community Development Block Grant CARES Act funding and Riverside County Workforce Development Department’s federal funding.
“The Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center, along with the city’s Jobs Blueprint Plan and Comprehensive Economic Development (CEDS) Plan, work together in synergy with one another to continue to position Menifee as a leader for growth and job creation in the region,” Menifee City Manager Armando G. Villa said. “We have been working hard to create partnerships to leverage and develop the resources that our businesses and residents both need in order to be successful and flourish.”
