Partnerships That Work

joblabSometimes partnerships pay off.

Fort Vancouver Regional Library’s partnership with Partners in Careers, made possible through a Renew Washington grant, has been a great success. Partners in Careers is an agency that works with refugees, low income seniors, and adults facing multiple challenges to employment.

The Library noticed that the job agency had contacts with Russian and Spanish speakers.  When the time came to translate their Renew Washington materials into Spanish and Russian to better serve those communities  in their service area, they put together a contract with the agency.

The result worked well for everyone:  Folks who needed work got it and the Library had their job resource materials translated by native speakers.
