Education and Jobs

We match the skills you have and build the skills you need to succeed at work and in life.

LCH offers education classes and job placement services. We work with individuals to understand their personal and professional goals, and connect with the resources needed to achieve these goals.

English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are now being offered through Chester County Intermediate Unit OIC. Registration is during the months of September and January

Job Placement

LCH works with over 150 local employers to connect job seekers with potential employment, and for businesses looking to hire.

We believe in growing our community to its fullest potential, and will direct members to the resources they need to find stable employment to support their families.

After a review of current job skills, we work with local businesses to find employment matches that fit the needs of the employer and the goals of the job candidate.  We refer clients to employers and job skills training programs with Wings for Success, ServSafe, the Latino Business Resource Center, the Financial Stability Center, and other community partners. Support is also available for youth looking for guidance in their career and education paths.  Click here to learn about ESCALERA, a pilot program for Avon Grove High School juniors.

  1. Consultation to discuss professional goals
  2. Review of job skills and resume
