What Is Justice Jobs?
Justice Jobs of Maryland, Inc. is a free, nonprofit employment office and job retention support service in Frederick, MD. We serve people in Frederick County who are reentering the workforce after being out of work for any reason.
Justice Jobs prepares jobseekers, matches them to employers with open positions, and follows up with the jobseekers and employers after interviews. Initial placements are primarily at entry level, with compensation usually between minimum wage and $17/hour. However, well-qualified jobseekers with experience and minimal barriers to employment have started higher.
After placement, Justice Jobs' Move-UP Program seeks to maintain contact with people hired through our program. Members of the Move-UP Program make connections and receive services through workshops and career counseling at the office. The short-term goal is advancement, optimization of employment, and achievement of a livable wage within 2-3 years. The long-term goal is to mentor the employee into the working or middle class if that is what the employee desires.
Local employers benefit from the work of Justice Jobs. We send them pre-screened, qualified jobseekers who are matched to open positions and have demonstrated reliability and competence by completing Justice Jobs’ applicant training program.
Justice Jobs of Maryland relies on volunteer and community support and is an IRS
501(c)(3) charitable corporation.
