FSET - Food Share Employment & Training
The Food Share Employment and Training Program is a self-supportive program through the state of Wisconsin that aims to help clients acquire working skills and find employment. Any individual who is receiving FoodShare benefits is eligible to participate in the FSET Program as a volunteer (individuals who are working full time, i.e., 30 hours or more a week, will not be included as volunteers).
FSET may also help clients with work-related expenses for the first 30 days of a job. FSET's mission is to help participants to find life and job related skills and stay involved in a structured atmosphere. FSET staff assists participants in acquiring the skills to find available employment or the skills to become employed. FSET staff hopes to help each enrolled participant feel as though they are contributing to themselves, their family and to the community by improving on employment and life skills as they participate.
FSET is a voluntary, no-cost program. You can take part in FSET activities for up to 27 hours per week.
FSET Can Help With:
- Job Searches and Job Referrals
- Transportation, Child Care, and Other Work Related Costs
- Job Skills Assessment
- Career Planning
- Basic Job Training
- Work Experience
- Referrals to Other Community Services (such as VERNA, DVR, NWCEP and Job Service).
WILL I LOSE FOODSHARE BENEFITS IF I DO NOT COMPLETE MY FSET ACTIVITIES?
FSET is a volunteer program, so you can keep your FoodShare benefits even if you do not complete your FSET activities. Keep in mind that if you don't complete your activities, you will not be able to get Child Care, help with transportation or other FSET supportive services.
