Buck a Book

The Employment Skills Center has been helping individuals become more employable, productive, and self-sufficient community members through Education and Training for the last 51 years.

Formed in 1967, they have served more than 14,000 people in Carlisle and Cumberland County, helping them step up from poverty and dependency to employment and self sufficiency.

They serve adults in search of raising their levels of basic academic skills, acquiring job-readiness and employability skills, and refining their life skills so that they will be empowered to succeed, while better defining their life's goals.

Their programs represent a second chance for many to achieve a better education, a better job, and a more fulfilling life.

We are again participating in Buck a Book, a fundraiser for the Employment Skills Center. Student Entry Envelopes will be sent home with students in January. Please consider having friends and relatives pledge $1 per book read.

Buck A Book will begin the week of January 8th. All participants are eligible for reading incentives which are out-lined on the Buck A Book envelope. Thank you for making a difference in our community!
