What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Career/Entrepreneur Development

Through our in-class career development training workshops, our strategy is to analyze the needs of the community and local businesses and tailor the program to meet present and future skill needs.
By empowering the young adults with information and training that is desired by employers now and in the future we are creating a workforce that has traditionally been underrepresented in the largest growth sectors of service, high-tech, and health-related industries. In conjunction with our partners we will work with our clients to help them create a resume, improve their interviewing skills and provide referrals to businesses in the Greater Houston area.

 

Beyond Careers will conduct entrepreneur training workshops. The client would need to have access to a computer. The prerequisite for these workshops will be that the client needs to go to Beyond Careers’ website: www.beyondcareers.org(http://www.beyondcareers.org/) to register for our workshops.  An on-line business assessment key will be sent to clients accepted into the program. The assessment will give them some insight into self-employment opportunities they may want to consider. Before the client actually starts the in-class entrepreneur training workshops, they will research the business they are interested in pursuing. Those individuals who are interested in being self-employed will be able to take those transferable skills and eventually become business owners.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. 25-50 students complete online and in-person Advanced tax preparation training by Beyond Careers to become Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-Certified tax preparers or greeters
2. Set up a minimum of 5 VITA sites.
3. Once IRS-Certified, students can volunteer at other VITA sites such as Houston Community College, University of Houston-Downtown, Westbury High School, Northside High Schools and other sites for Beyond Careers
4. Minimum of 50 families at each of Beyond Careers' VITA sites will receive Free Tax Preparation Services in Spring 2017 (Track number of tax returns based on student account set up under Beyond Careers' Site Identification Number and Electronic Filing Identification Number)

Advertise Volunteer opportunities in local newsletters, community-based organization's e-mail distribution lists. Promote program at community colleges, universities, high schools and administrative offices at educational institutions.

Being a previous member of a board of directors for Southwest Houston 2000, a community-based organization, connections were made with editors of local newsletters, businesses, community colleges, high schools etc., and those associated with them helped build a relationship. Through this relationship, they have helped Beyond Careers to promote its programs.

So far, we have posted the volunteer opportunity in local newsletters and community-based organization's e-mail distribution lists. Promote program at community colleges, universities, high schools and administrative offices at educational institutions.

Set up account through Houston Community College (HCC) Career Planning and Placement portal. This allows volunteer and other opportunities to be viewed by students at HCC.
