Natural Step

JVS to administer Hermelin ORT
Center, which has a new director.

F

ollowing several months of
discussion, an agreement to
join resources has been signed
between JVS and ORT America Inc. that
will transfer the David B. Hermelin ORT
Resource Center (Hermelin ORT) under
the administration of JVS.
The center is in the Jewish Community
Center in West Bloomfield. The two
organizations have worked together for
10 years, with Hermelin ORT providing
needed Microsoft Office computer train-
ing and JVS' Career Development and
Employment Services providing employ-
ment readiness and support services.
The ORT Resource Center is now a
division of JVS and JVS is licensed by
ORT to implement its programs and
services.
"The agreement is a natural step that
formalizes the synergy between JVS and
Hermelin ORT and serves to strengthen
both',' said JVS President and CEO
Barbara Nurenberg, "It has always been
both organizations' goal to empower
individuals with the skills needed to
attain economic self-sufficiency with
a sense of independence and dignity.
Hermelin ORT offers outstanding corn-
puter skills training and website devel-
opment instruction.
"This meshes perfectly with JVS'
mission to provide counseling, training
and support services to help people help
themselves. Without computer skills, it
is nearly impossible to compete in the

job market. JVS began an even greater
collaboration with Hermelin ORT three
years ago to launch Springboard to
Success, which is funded through a grant
from the Jewish Women's Foundation. It
has yielded great success, with 85 per-
cent of participants finding employment
and the others go on to more training or
higher education.
Nicole Miller, regional director of ORT
America, calls the partnership a win-win.
"Here locally, we are excited about
the partnership between Hermelin ORT
and JVS and can't wait to see the pro-
grams grow',' she said. "We know that
with their resources
and management,
Hermelin ORT will
be able to offer more
valuable job training
programs to more
of Michigan's unem-
ployed and under-
employed!'
Kevin Cohen
Hermelin ORT
offers many services
to the community for a fee, including
film, video and audio transfers, website
development, private instruction, social
media consultation and instruction and
video production and editing.
Kevin Cohen, who has an extensive
background in information technology,
is the program director. For information,
call (248) 432 - 5411.
