Improving access to education and family-supporting careers
NWTC is working on new ways to connect people with low incomes to family-supporting careers. Thanks to a grant from the Kresge Foundation, NWTC is partnering with Forward Service Corporation to participate in Kresge’s Boosting Opportunities for Social and Economic Mobility (BOOST) initiative. With BOOST, individuals enrolled in Wisconsin Works through Forward Service Corporation will have improved access to educational opportunities at NWTC. The project is designed to create systems needed at NWTC to effectively work with under-resourced students. BOOST assists students in seeing their full potential by allowing them to create their own dreams, with success being the ultimate goal.
