The goal of this program is to increase economic opportunity in the community by preparing individuals for success in the workplace, meaningful careers and economic prosperity. It's a well‐known fact that the best way to find a job is through networking. Our SEECER - Social Enterprise Employment and Career Entrepreneur Resource Program, is one of the solutions that enables our community members to expand their networks of contacts and serves as a supporting group.
The empathy and encouragement provided by supportive teams and peers at We Are One United is particularly uplifting in times of economic recession. We believe that we can improve work opportunities by helping people create new businesses and helping existing businesses expand and create new jobs.

Inspired by the Dr. Seuss book, "Oh the Places You'll Go", the event served as a community resource in exploring career options within the Coachella Valley.
At the event, organizations, businesses, and individuals were invited to represent different careers that could be options past high school. The aim in presenting these resources was to demonstrate that there was a successful career that aligned with the interest of the individual, and that it was never too late to pursue these opportunities. We hoped to inspire individuals by giving them resources and showing them all the places they could go.
We were excited to have guests from different local industries sharing their experiences with us, including representatives from Visit Greater Palm Springs, CVEP, Riverside County Black Chamber of Commerce, International Brotherhood of Electric Workers and Coachella Valley High Scholl Health College with us.
The target audience was the people within the Palm Springs community, although the event aimed to be inclusive and was open to people from all communities and ages.
Our goal was to demonstrate the vast opportunities in post-secondary careers or paths, and make an impact, especially in the underserved communities. We hope we can make this into an annual event, and increase the awareness of the vast amount of career opportunities available in the Greater Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley area.
