The Economic Opportunities Program (EOP) at The Partnership for the Homeless is designed to help clients who are currently unemployed or underemployed find and maintain full-time, sustainable employment as a core part of the road to self-sufficiency.
The EOP Empowerment Workshop Coordinator plays a critical role at the beginning of the EOP. Focusing on personal growth and self-awareness in order to help our clients realize their educational and employment potential and discover a career path is the backbone of EOP's approach. EOP accomplishments this through a series of workshops that use art therapy interwoven with topics such as self-regulation, future orientation, self-efficacy, social intelligence, leadership, and others as they relate to employment. The EOP Empowerment Workshop Coordinator will work closely with our collegiate partners in the oversight of our outcome oriented, group art therapy workshops for our clients.
The EOP Empowerment Workshop Coordinator will work with master's level art therapy students as they create workshops to meet clients' stated goals; assist art therapy interns as they assess clients needs using drawing, painting, sculpting, or other artistic processes;communicate client assessment findings and recommendations; oversee art therapy sessions providing guided self-expression experiences to help clients recover from or cope with cognitive, emotional, or other impairments.
