Facilitating Career Development Classes
Applicants are primarily career coaches and college advisors but also includes applications from partners such as Adult Ed, Workforce Services and community partners connected to WIOA or special populations.
At the postsecondary level, economically disadvantaged is the largest special population category and, because this is present in other categories such as those with disabilities or limited English skills, funds are directed to this area.
Poverty simulations and workshops are held to increase awareness of barriers encountered by under-resourced students and to assist college staff with resource identification and appropriate strategies. Poverty simulations and workshops were provided for community based organizations, educational cooperatives, college staff, college students, and adult education.
