TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — Administrators and State Leaders have committed to helping students find a career through their new program, "Learn and Work in Utah."
The program offers short-term training to unemployed and underemployed people who have been financially impacted by COVID-19.
Many people have had to pivot skills and jobs in order to adapt to challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This program allows those in need to learn a new trade and a new skill-set so they can successfully re-enter the workforce.
"It`'s hard I think especially for most people to know what they want to do until they`'ve had a chance to try it out," says Peter Reed, SLCC Advanced Manufacturing Program Manager. "This is a great chance to be able to try it out and it`s really low risk one."
According to their website, "Qualifying individuals who are unemployed or underemployed because of COVID-19, and legal residents of Utah, will have their tuition covered through funding the governor’s office has received from the federal CARES Act."
