National Workplace Literacy Project. Final Performance Report.
Little Hoop Community Coll., Fort Totten, ND.
With funding from a National Workplace Literacy grant, Little Hoop Community College in Fort Totten, North Dakota, conducted a combined literacy and career counseling program for members of the Devils Lake Sioux Tribe. During the project period, 86 participants completed individual education plans appropriate to their personal work objectives and an additional 183 individuals received diagnostic services for proficiency levels directly related to their employer's target level of applied communications. Of 286 individuals given basic skills instruction during the grant period, 201 completed their educational goals for an overall completion rate of 70%. In addition, 72 program participants received career counseling or advisement from the project counselor, and 22 individuals obtained a General Educational Development certificate. All 286 project participants received support services from at least one element of the literacy project, and 32 referrals were made for services outside the project's support to 14 different federal, state, county, tribal, or community agencies. Because of a local employment surge that drew 28% of the career assessment and job search skills training component's participants into the workplace, that component's completion rate was only 23%.
