HARTFORD, CT - Express Kitchens, a Connecticut based kitchen cabinet and counter-top manufacturer, with seven locations across Connecticut and West Springfield, MA, announced that they have partnered with Capital Work Force to provide technical training and new employment opportunities to Connecticut’s inner-city unemployed.

Connecticut’s Capital Work Force (CWF) slogan “Jobs for People, People for Jobs” describes the intent of this organization as it coordinates programs and initiatives to develop a skilled, educated and vital workforce. CWF’s Job Funnel is a pre-employment preparation and job training service for Hartford and area residents seeking employment in the construction fields, and serves as the model “Funnel” establishment for the state. The name "Jobs Funnel," is taken from a process individuals go through – funneling into the system to gain specific work competencies and trade-related certifications. They then funnel out to embark on a self-sustaining and rewarding career journey. CWF’s Yolanda Rivera stated in reference to Express Kitchen’s ongoing Job Funnel program, “Express Kitchens commitment to our inner-city workforce development has been tremendous, further, Express Kitchens goes out of their way in training people with low skill levels, getting them ready for new technical career opportunities.”
