Workplace Literacy Project for Refugees

This is an opportunity to expand workplace literacy services for Wisconsin Literacy members involvement in the Wilson Fish TANF Coordination Program.

To participate, programs MUST:
-- be a Wisconsin Literacy member
-- operate in Barron, Brown, Calumet, Dane, Eau Claire, Milwaukee, Outagamie, Sheboygan, or Winnebago Counties
-- serve refugees
-- track NRS outcomes
-- record TANF eligibility for participants

Programs will receive a sub-award to support the Wilson Fish TANF Coordination Program. Activities through the sub-award may include:
-- engage employers to employ refugees
-- teach workplace literacy classes
-- send staff to Transition to Success (TTS) 20-hour training
(W2 agencies already use the TTS tool, increasing awareness or use through literacy agencies will improve co-case-management for better employment outcomes for refugees.)

Through this partnership, refugee participants will:
-- obtain employment
-- retain employment through language and training support
-- increase wages
