The Work Ready Program focuses on 15 competencies in Sonoma County Employers identified as being needed for success on the job. Successful participants will earn a basic food handlers certificate, the Sonoma County Office of Education's Work Ready Certificate and a completion reward in the form of a $200 paycheck.
