Skills Enhancement is a program for participants in both Rock and Walworth Counties. Skills Enhancement is designed to increase the income and economic self-sufficiency of low-wage working households by helping adult members acquire the skills they need to obtain higher paying jobs with health insurance benefits in demand occupations. Eligible participants must reside in households with incomes at or below 150% of the federal poverty level and be employed at least 20 hours per week. A strong commitment is required on behalf of the participant to combine training, work, and in many cases raising a family, in the short-term, in exchange for long term economic benefits.
Community Action provides financial support to cover the costs of classes and training designed to increase marketability and ability to be employed. Additionally, financial assistance is available for training-related childcare and transportation costs. Participants receive assistance in developing individualized training plans, problem-solving, career assessment, accessing community resources and job search. On average, completion of the program takes 28 months.
