Something For Everyone

Matrix Human Services has partnered with the Detroit at Work Skills for Life Program, providing a unique opportunity to achieve your goals all while getting paid at the same time!

If hired by the City of Detroit, you’ll work three days per week on projects that are important to the city, making a positive impact in neighborhoods across Detroit. You’ll also be paid to attend education or training two days per week to earn a credential that leads to a career.

You’ll get valuable experience and skills that you can put on your resume.

You’ll be able to get your high-school diploma or GED if you don’t already have it or earn a credential needed for in demand jobs. Either way, you’ll leave the Skills for Life Program with access to a wider range of jobs.
