Mission Statement

The Utah Refugee Education and Training Center is a partnership between Salt Lake Community College, Utah State University and the Utah Department of Workforce Services. This partnership facilitates employment training and access to academic achievement -- making a real difference by helping families reach a sustainable wage

Description

As part of the Department of Workforce Service, the Utah Refugee Education and Training Center is implementing tech-related programs for refugees that will enhance their ability to secure tech-related jobs, e ducational opportunities for refugees and other underrepresented communities in Utah. We leverage skill-based volunteerism as well as targeted in-kind and financial donations to provide free training and tech certification pathways for qualified applicants who otherwise would not have access to these opportunities. We target individuals with demonstrated financial need, interest in tech fields, a strong desire for self-improvement and a history of community engagement. Our methodology centers around using info-graphic materials to distil information; facilitated group dialogue; and hands-on projects that nurture the inherent curiosity, self-confidence, communication and teamwork skills of participants.
