Workforce Development Center Awarded $225,000 Multi-Year Grant

New Community Workforce Development Center has been awarded a three-year grant totaling $225,000 to provide academic literacy support and vocation training services related to its occupational training programs.

The annual $75,000 grant comes from LISC’s Family Income and Wealth Building program and is meant to help New Community Workforce Development Center align with LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. The model includes a period of “contextualized bridge training,” which means the instruction focuses on industry-relevant material. An example would be teaching fractions through the lens of measurements that are needed in the field of construction. The goal is to teach the academic skills in a way that more readily prepares students for their future careers.
