Couleecap’s Skills Enhancement Program Helps Workers Acquire the Skills to Obtain Higher Paying Jobs
Couleecap’s Skills Enhancement Program helps low-income adults who are working at least 20 hours per week, acquire the skills necessary to obtain higher paying jobs and health benefits.
“The Skills Enhancement program is a stepping-stone to self-sufficiency and is designed to address the training needs of low-income workers,” said Andrew Londre, Couleecap’s Business & Income Developer. The program can assist with the costs associated with returning to school and furthering an education or participating in trade development and certificate programs. The program may be able to help pay for books, tuition and class fees, as well as transportation and child care costs associated with returning to school.
Thanks to the generosity of the Otto Bremer Foundation Couleecap is able to expand this program in 2014, and is looking for people who may qualify for assistance.
