 What is SNAP Employment + Training?

Great opportunity for adult SNAP clients to get career training for good jobs.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), known before as food stamps, helps low income individuals and families buy food to stay healthy.

The Employment and Training (E & T) Program is a federally funded and prepares clients for work by offering a scholarship application program with career skills, training, mentoring, and support services. This approach helps students/clients learn professional skills that result in work opportunities paying good wages.

The MxCC SNAP  E & T program currently offers only the following non-credit courses and vary by semester. The MxCC Continuing Ed online course listing has times and dates at
