Workforce Equity Initiative Grant Virtual Open House
December 3, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM
The Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) recently announced an award of $1,200,000 for the continuance of the Workforce Equity Initiative (WEI) Grant at South Suburban College. The WEI project is designed to create, support, and expand short-term workforce training opportunities in high need areas within SSC District #510. Through new programs, expanded access, opportunity, and support services, the project is anticipated to yield impactful outcomes for individuals, families, communities, local businesses.
Additionally, the WEI grant provides wrap-around services including comprehensive financial assistance and academic support to participating students within five program areas providing stackable credentials including Nursing and Patient Care Technician (PCT), Basic Nursing Assistance Training Program (BNATP), Community Healthcare Worker (CHW), and Certified Production Technician (CPT), in addition to a Barber College at SSC’s Main Campus. When SSC’s Barbering Program opens this spring, it will become the only active public barber school in the State of Illinois.
SSC is hosting a WEI Virtual Open House to provide information to students who could benefit from WEI funding, programs, and services in the Spring 2021 Semester and beyond.
