The Workplace Education Program (WEP) was a literacy partnership between Emily Griffith Opportunity School and 5 business partners at 11 sites in Denver, Colorado. All of the business partners were in the health care sector. A total of 907 individuals were served during the project grant period. Of those individuals, 226 attended supplementary workshops and the 681 attended modular and long- or short-term classes in one of the following topics: English as a second language (ESL) and ESL/math, writing skills, basic skills enhancement/General Educational Development (GED) Test preparation, vocabulary for health care personnel, and communications. Of the 681 course enrollees, 575 completed their courses.
