The Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center is now open! This news comes when the state recently announced the ending of the statewide federal pandemic unemployment insurance (September 4). The City of Menifee in partnership with Riverside County Workforce Development, has opened the Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center at the Kay Ceniceros Senior Center located at 29995 Evans Road, Menifee, CA 92586.
The Temporary Menifee Workforce Development Center is housed in the Senior Center’s upgraded computer lab and is currently open to individuals (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 services times for potential job seekers. The new workforce development 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 and will provide job candidates an array of services including career coaching assistance, resume writing, job search assistance, specialty training, skills development, specialized recruitment events, and workshops for individuals.
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 Menifee Temporary Workforce Development Center, and updated computer lab, was provided via the City of Menifee’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) CARES Act funding, and Riverside Workforce Development Department’s federal funding. “The Menifee Temporary Workforce Development Center, along with the City’s Job’s 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,” said Armando G. Villa, Menifee City Manager. “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.”
