April 10, 2017 -  Fredericksburg, VA-  Chef Tommy Abbott (Spencer Devon Brewing) to launch non-profit program, Project F.O.R.C.E., April 17, 2017, in downtown Fredericksburg. Project F.O.R.C.E. (Fostering Occupational Readiness with Community Enterprise) is aimed at assisting chronically unemployed, homeless individuals find gainful employment through in-depth, on-the-job training, education in time management, organizational habits, and resume building, as well as job application and interview procedures. Each graduate will receive SafeServ certification and be outfitted in a uniform to better prepare them for an entry level position within the community.

Chef Abbott will select one individual from Micah Ecumenical Ministries, to begin the program on its launch date of April 17th. They will graduate the 90 day program fully prepared to interview and work in a commercial kitchen. Abbott aims to expand Project F.O.R.C.E., in the future, to include other industries and locations, as well as develop a strong mentorship program.

Project F.O.R.C.E. is currently looking for local restaurants interested in participating in the program as future employers or program trainers as well as people with experience in creating non-profit organizations.
