Gaudenzia Workforce Academy
Gaudenzia continues to be in the forefront of employee development and entry level job opportunities to replenish our ever changing human service workforce.
Gaudenzia Center for Higher Education grew out of an ever pressing need to replace the pool of entry level human services workers in the fields of substance abuse, mental health and criminal justice services. The center currently has a working relationship with the following institutions of higher learning:
Baltimore City Community College
Central Penn College
Community College of Philadelphia
The Training Institute provides roughly 228 training offerings to over 2520 human service and behavioral health professionals on a yearly bases. We continue to train our staff on how to take online CEU seminars. We currently are providing an array of trainings for both Gaudenzia Erie and RAP in Washington DC.

Gaudenzia Peer Leadership Program is a twelve month job development program which entails eighteen weeks of training three days a week, a six week internship at a designated Gaudenzia program four days a week for six hours, followed by a six month on-the-job training experience. The goal of the program is to prepare individuals to attain self-sufficiency through employment as House Managers with a potential career path within Gaudenzia. Participants must be referred by a Gaudenzia Division Director and have one year of sobriety by the completion of the program. Participants are then eligible to sit for the (PCB) Certified Recovery Specialist Examination and Servsafe Certification upon successful completion of the program. Peer Leadership Programs are scheduled in four areas for the 2017 – 2018 fiscal year.
Gaudenzia Project Entry: A ten week skills development program designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of current House Managers. The program has successfully trained 12 cohorts across the organization, six in the Eastern Region, two in the Central Region, two in the Chesapeake Region and two in Erie. Upon successful completion trainees are eligible to sit for the (PCB) Certified Recovery Specialist Examination and Servsafe Certification.
Upon successful completion of the Project Entry and Peer Leadership Programs we continue to work closely with the trainees to provide the mentoring and referrals sources necessary for entrance into higher education institutions.
