Become a Host Site for NEO Skill Corp
University Settlement in partnership with The Literacy Cooperative has released a Request for Application (RFA) to organizations that serve populations with barriers that include low adult literacy levels and low employability.
NEO Skill Corps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and funded by a grant from the Ohio Commission on Service and Volunteerism (Serve Ohio). NEO Skill Corps matches AmeriCorps’ members with organizations to provide financial literacy and workplace training combined with basic skill development services to economically disadvantaged residents of Northeast Ohio. Members provide host organizations with additional programmatic support by instructing classes, developing curricula, providing case management, making referrals, and recruiting and managing financial literacy, job readiness, and adult education volunteers and programs.
During our first three years of service, we made a dramatic impact on Greater Cleveland communities where low adult basic skills and financial literacy negatively affected the ability of residents to obtain, maintain and sustain employment. NEO Skill Corps members instructed financial literacy to more than 2,769 adults and assisted 2,426 with adult education and workforce development training.
Applications are now closed for the 2020-2021 year. For more information, contact:
