UP CENTER BOOKS
Up Center Books is The Up Center’s work readiness training and transitional jobs program for adults with barriers to employment, including past incarceration, low education attainment, substance abuse recovery, and former homelessness. At our training facility, we teach the skills involved in selling donated books and media on the Internet via online marketplaces including eBay, Amazon and Alibris. Trainees work for up to four months and develop marketable skills such as organization, data entry, and customer service. Trainees also learn to get to work on time, communicate effectively, and demonstrate dedication to their jobs.
