Education

Community Services Consortium values education and training as a key element in achieving our goal of eliminating poverty in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties. Because education is so important to the success of the people we serve, we have included an educational or training component into every one of our programs. In this way, Community Services Consortium provides our clients with the tools they need to build successful and productive lives.

Through our workshops, we help people understand the importance of developing an excellent credit history or restoring a damaged one; we offer money management and workshops on how to be a good tenant in order to maintain a positive relationship with your landlord; we help youth successfully graduate high school or earn their GEDs, while giving them onsite employment training with local employers; and we offer adults training in weatherization, construction, or other on-the-job training.

We are proud of our focus on education and training and of the many partnerships in education we have formed in the communities we serve.
