Mission Critical Systems and Dress for Success Denver team up to train disadvantaged Colorado women
Date:6/17/2010

Mission Critical Systems and Dress for Success Denver are partnering together to deliver computer training to disadvantaged women in Colorado. For every 2 employees a company trains through training coupons, MCS will train one person from Dress for Success Denver in basic computer skills.

(PRWEB) June 17, 2010 -- Denver-based Mission Critical Systems (MCS) and Dress for Success Denver (DFSD) have teamed up to train disadvantaged Colorado women. For every two employees a company trains by the MCS public computer training calendar, MCS will train one DFSD client in basic computer skills. Private Computer training commitments can spur an even higher training ratio.

DFSD promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a support network and career development tools. On a referral basis, DFSD serves job-ready women from a range of non-profit organizations including domestic violence agencies, homeless shelters, and job-training programs.

MCS offers on-site and remote IT infrastructure development, management and training to clients across the western US.

Companies simply purchase class coupons by August 31 from MCS for either public calendar classes in a MCS Training Center or for on-site private training classes. Training can be scheduled anytime in the next year. To get coupons, either email steven(dot)nichols(at)mcstech(dot)net or call 303-383-1627 x1004.

In addition to the 2-for-1 training offer, employers also can benefit from training package discounts. For public calendar classes, a six-class commitment entitles the employer to a 10 percent discount, and provides training for three DFSD clients. Eighteen classes result in a 15 percent discount and training for nine women, while a 36-class commitment entitles the employer to a 20 percent discount, and provides training for 18 disadvantaged women.

For private training classes, employers receive a 10 percent discount for six classes (trains 27 disadvantaged women), a 15 percent savings for 12 classes (trains 54 disadvantaged women), and a 20 percent discount for 24 classes (trains 108 disadvantaged women).

“Through this program, it’s possible for private employers to quite literally train an entire workforce of disadvantaged women,” notes MCS Training Director Jenny Douras. “With the attire that Dress for Success Denver provides, this program offers a total solution to help get out-of-work people employed in meaningful positions.”

Douras says she hopes this partnership will provide “substantial growth of a program that already serves 1,200 people annually and finds employment for more than a third of them. Ongoing computer training can help this organization’s clients keep—as well as get promoted within—their jobs, making this a gift that keeps on giving.”

DFSD Executive Director Donna Deteau adds that keeping women gainfully employed also means gains for the overall economy. “Women are responsible for 83% of all consumer purchases in this country. Locally, every dollar donated to Dress for Success Denver creates a value of $1.58 in the Denver economy,” Deteau notes.
