Partner Spotlight


Project Learn of Summit County has been providing hope and opportunities for adults in need of basic education services since 1981. An estimated 8% of the population of Summit County - more than 43,000 people - lack basic literacy skills, and 10% did not graduate from high school. In addition to teaching basic literacy and preparing students to take the GED test, Project Learn also serves Akron's growing immigrant and refugee community with ESOL classes.

These services are vital to the economic stability not only of the individuals served, but the entire northeast Ohio region. Project Learn is proud to partner with TalentNEO to provide more options for individuals to advance their education and their careers. As the lead partner for upskilling in Summit County, Project Learn works with job seekers who need to increase their scores on the WorkKeys® assessments in order to access employment and training opportunities. Project Learn partners with Goodwill Industries and the Summit County Ohio Means Job Center to provide classes and additional career assistance, such as resume-writing workshops and practice interviews. Through these partnerships, adults throughout Summit County can improve their lives and the lives of their families, while also strengthening the fabric of the community.

Employer Spotlight
 
With an ongoing need to fill seasonal and 30-week per year positions, The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections was identified as a partner employer for the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland (CEOGC) Customer Service Training Program. After explaining CEOGC's workshops and programs, the Board of Elections asked if graduating Customer Service Program participants had WorkKeys skills scores. At the time not everyone had WorkKeys scores, so in order to meet the employers’ recommendations, CEOGC made WorkKeys testing a part of the curriculum. 
 
The Human Resources Manager for the Board of Elections loves the Work Keys Assessments — especially the Summary Report where it explains the meaning of the scores for each test. As of the hiring period ending on June 17th, eight CEOGC Customer Service Program graduates have been tested and referred. Five graduates (one of which is now the full-time administrative assistant with the Board of Elections) have been confirmed as hired by the Board of Elections, and recruitment has begun for positions that will begin in the fall.
