Introduction to Healthcare Employment and Apprenticeships Program (IHAP)

The program includes Healthcare Foundations, Nursing Assistant Certification, and Apprenticeships.
The apprenticeship options are: Medical Assistant, Sterile Processing Technician, Pharmacy Technician, and three emerging roles in the Behavioral Health Field. Many of these also include clinicals in approved medical settings.

Digital Bridge focuses on decreasing the digital divide. SJI and its partners are proven providers of culturally competent digital skills training through applied learning. We not only provide no cost technology but also seamlessly blend teaching digital literacy skills with the hard and soft skills needed by employers. We teach:
• WORD in conjunction with resume and letter of application writing;
• interviewing is combined with video conferencing skills;
• using the internet through job searches; and,
• emailing and adding attachments as part of employment etiquette and responsiveness.

Participants’ learning and skills do not end with the training but can serve as a launch point for additional training, education, or immediate employment.

Population(s) Served

In partnership with the King County Executive Office designed to assist community members in achieving their personal and professional goals. The program utilizes a cohort-based model and targets people who are in temporary housing who would like to move into permanent housing while seeking gainful, sustainable employment. After two weeks of training on topics such as workplace etiquette and resume writing, program participants take part in a networking event with local employer partners. Additionally, they are then connected with a Rapid Rehousing agent who facilitates the acquisition of a more permanent housing solution. Participants are given laptops and tablets free of charge at the beginning of the program and are also awarded a $700 stipend at the culmination of the two-weeks of training. They also work with an assigned Career Navigator to develop a career plan toward a consistent, well-paying career.
