DOS Bridge Program 26833 Mohawk Valley Workforcement Investment Board Bridge Program Young refugee adults in the city of Utica have survived persecution in their homelands, the squalor of refugee camps, and now, in the land of opportunity, find perhaps the cruelest plight of all: they are a language barrier away from the jobs that can help them carry on America's immigrant tradition of rising to the top on the strength of their work. Young men and women who arrive as older teen-agers have little time to learn the language in school, and need intensive English as a Second Language classes twinned with vocational classes so that they can move into the workforce and begin the journey to success. The Workforce Investment Board has developed this project to provide this population with the training needed for fast attachment to the workforce, helping refugees become sufficiently literate for the workplace as they learn work skills that will make them valued employees. Soft skills development will help refugees understand the American workplace and work customs. Strong case management will ensure that refugees have a contact person they can trust who will be their advocate with their employer, while from the employer perspective that same case manager will ensure the refugee adjusts to the new work environment successfully. With a population of 200 to 400 low-income refugee youth between the ages of 18 and 24, the city of Utica needs this project to move this important segment from the sidelines and the streets into the main stream of the community. $93,358.00 Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 20:00 Tuesday, December 30, 2014 - 19:00
