orkOne Northern Indiana has teamed with Capital Wealth Advisors, a division of Indiana Community Bank, to provide meeting space for 450 job seekers every month to strengthen their skills by attending WorkOne’s training workshops; the donated rooms for workshop gatherings will be used during a construction project at WorkOne Elkhart County, 430 Waterfall Drive, in Elkhart.
MOVE TO FOUR ARTS BUILDING
Beginning Nov. 28, 2011, the skills-training workshops will be held at the Four Arts Building, 311 West High Street, in Elkhart. Indiana Community Bank owns the structure, which stands next to the bank. Workforce development managers anticipate that workshops will return to the WorkOne Elkhart County facility in early February 2012.
“This donation of meeting space shows a generous sense of commitment to the community by Capital Wealth Advisors and Indiana Community Bank, and WorkOne would like to thank them on behalf of 450 Hoosiers who typically attend the training sessions every month,” said Chuck Knebl, communications manager for WorkOne Northern Indiana, designated as Economic Growth Region 2 in the state’s 12-region framework.
“I understand the importance of these valuable workshops,” added Tripp Bradford, investment advisor for Capital Wealth Advisors, a division of Indiana Community Bank. Bank officials are pleased to help job seekers, Bradford noted.
