New report highlights immigrant skill-building programs

Written by ProTrain

A study released by the National Skills Coalition explores seven program models from around the United States that effectively serve immigrant workers.

Upskilling the New American Workforce provides examples of how to best serve immigrant jobseekers and adult English language learners.

Advocates interested in launching similar programs in their own communities can draw on the lessons from this report, including:

  • The importance of demand-driven, evidence-based training programs that use tested models to prepare individuals for jobs that local employers need
  • The availability of financial and other resources via key federal policies such as SNAP Employment & Training, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and Community Development Block Grants to support education and training programs
  • The opportunity to capitalize on visionary state policies  to serve immigrant workers
