What is the 477 Program of the Training and Resource Center (TERC)?
The mission of the TERC, is to assists Seneca youth and adults to succeed in the workforce by encouraging self-sufficiency, facilitating the creation of job opportunities and providing services that are related to job readiness.

The 477 Program offers a “one stop” shop for the Seneca community by continuous networking with various institutions, agencies, apprenticeships or individuals that offer vocational or on-the-job training and building partnerships with them, as they seek employable people. It is our job, to assist in providing qualified and/or certified members of our community to fill those positions. The success of our participants, is our success!
