WfD is also designed to provide communities with high-quality projects/activities that are useful to those communities. WfD projects are designed in such a way that they do not cross paths with existing full-time or part-time employees or take jobs away from them. The work for the Dole is part of jobactive. It is an internship program that engages job seekers in activities where they can gain new skills, experiences and confidence to move from social assistance to work while giving back to their community.
