How it Works

We meet with you, talk about your goals, and look at all your options. If you qualify for funding, we’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to get help with tuition and supplies to start down the path toward more training and a great job.

Choose one of the following ways to find out if you qualify 

Option 1: Schedule a 15-minute phone meeting with one of our staff and we’ll be able to give you a general idea of what you qualify for.

Make an appointment


Option 2: Take a quick survey and attend a workshop

You likely qualify if any of the following apply:

A recently laid off worker, low-income individual, person receiving unemployment benefits, parent receiving cash assistance, food-stamp recipient, and others.
