The Equity Project is committed to advancing racial equity and economic mobility in Kensington. We do this by providing employment services and critical community resources, with a commitment to continually evolving our programming based on the needs and wants of our neighbors.
Our core program features innovative services for both jobseekers and employers. We provide quality skills training, original workshops, and personalized, one-on-one case management for jobseekers while identifying qualified candidates for the area’s employers. In addition, The Equity Project is open to all for the following:
- Literacy and basic computer skills building
- Job search, placement, and retention support
- Public access to computers, online resources, printers, and fax machines
- Community building activities and programs
- Free children’s books through the Mayor’s Read by 4th Initiative
Many human service environments aren’t designed to meet the real needs of real people. Here at The Equity Project, we’ve taken a different approach.
Designed with trauma-informed principles, our space is one of support and inspiration. We have space for children to play and read, open areas for workshops and community events, private nooks for reading and conversation, and more. We hope you’ll visit soon.
