Information: The Mon Valley Initiative's Workforce Development program works to assist unemployed and under employed Mon Val-ley residents in preparing for and accessing employment opportunities that exist in the region. The Workforce Develop-ment Team can assist you in such areas as referrals to training and education opportunities, resume development, inter-view technique career exploration workshops, job placement, and assistance with criminal background issues. Bridging The Gap, Cleaning Up Your Rap Sheet workshop provides information about why you should review your rap sheet, how to get a copy of the rap sheet, how to read your rap sheet and the process for cleaning up your rap sheet. Mon Valley Ini-tiative is also home of The Southwestern Pennsylvania Re-entry Coalition, a program fosters collaboration among agencies in South-western Pennsylvania to coordinate resources for individuals whose criminal record creates barriers to self-sufficiency. Representatives from participating organizations have come together to find the best way to provide ex-offenders with the services they need as the re-enter society and the workforce.
