Buck-A-Book 2019

The Employment Skills Center has been helping individuals become more employable, productive, and self-sufficient community members through education and training for the last fifty-two years.

Formed in 1967, they have served more than fourteen thousand people in Carlisle and Cumberland County, helping them step up from poverty and dependency to employment and self sufficiency.

They serve adults in search of raising their levels of basic academic skills, acquiring job-readiness and employability skills, and refining their life skills so that they will be empowered to succeed, while better defining their life's goals.

Their programs represent a second chance for many to achieve a better education, a better job, and a more fulfilling life.
