(Worker Advancement Initiative – WAI) Program
Employ Milwaukee Inc.’s (EMI) Skillful Transitions Program is an initiative to assist people whose previous employment has not come back post-pandemic, as well as those who were not working, or had an uneven work history, prior to the pandemic. The Skillful Transitions program offers opportunities to individuals for paid work experiences with local employers, and/or skills training for high-demand jobs. It’s also intended to help businesses who lost a part of their workforce due to the pandemic and faced economic hardship, or those who are looking to grow their current workforce.
The Skillful Transitions Program is funded using American Rescue Plan Act State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (ARPA SLFRF).
