Learn more about how you can be part of shaping our community’s workforce and gain access to the skilled employees you need!
There are 31,000 people in Dane County over the age of 18 who do not have a high school diploma. HIRE Education Employment Initiative will focus on these adults who do not have a high school diploma and want to obtain marketable skills relevant to today’s economy.
By providing a navigation plan to employment, HIRE Education Employment Initiative strives to align participant’s skills with employer needs.
HIRE Education Employment Initiative will…
1. Improve your ability to hire employees with the skill sets or certifications needed for your industry
2. Provide potential applicants with interpersonal, critical thinking and problem solving skills
3. Offer opportunities to diversify your workforce
4. Give you the opportunity to be a visible partner in building our local economy
The HIRE Education Employment Initiative is a Dane County partnership between: United Way of Dane County, Literacy Network, Centro Hispano, Department of Workforce Development, Madison College, Omega School, Operation Fresh Start, Urban League of Greater Madison, Vera Court Neighborhood Center and YWCA Madison with advisory support from WI Department of Public Instruction and University of Wisconsin- Madison Law School
