The Basic Food, Employment, and Training program offers tuition, book and supply funding, career and educational advising, support in navigating DSHS, and childcare assistance to students that are receiving federal Basic Food Assistance (food stamps) from DSHS.
LWTech partners with Community Based Organizations that offer help to qualified students. Many of these community organizations have a regular presence on our campus. Their presence helps increase accessibility to students.
The Worker Retraining program offers tuition assistance, career counseling, advising, priority class registration, and other benefits to individuals in career transition such as laid-off workers, displaced homemakers, vulnerable workers, and formerly self-employed individuals. Military veterans discharged in the last 48 months, and active duty military with separation orders, may be eligible for help with the cost of books.
The Employment Resource Center offers services such as job search resources, assistance with search, and online job postings. The services are for students, alumni, and community members. We also offer workshops for those choosing a career, resume writing, and interviewing.
