Eagles Social Justice Fund Awards Project HOME $20,000 for Adult Employment
The Eagles Social Justice Fund has awarded Project HOME a grant of $20,000 to fund the Adult Employment Program for residents and the community in the 19121 neighborhood.
In 2020, Project HOME’s Adult Education and Employment Program made many changes to their programs to continue in the pandemic. Tutoring and HiSET/GED classes moved online in early spring, training students and instructors to use video chat. Adult Employment continues to expand computer skills classes to be delivered virtually in response to the increasing demand for these skills.
Project HOME’s Adult Education and Employment Program is committed to providing the necessary remote instruction that leads to gained or improved employment for their students. Some of the modifications to their curricula have included shrinking classes sizes, more one-on-one tutoring, more interactive learning, and improvement of the assessment and intake processes. They are also launching a pilot program to teach new computer and internet skills training and will be using new instructional skills that include remoting into student’s computers to demonstrate tasks, as well as group labs, and embedded assessments.
This generous grant from the Eagles Social Justice Fund will go a long way in supporting all the changes that Adult Employment will continue to make to meet the needs of their students. Visit the Philadelphia Eagles for more information on the other grant recipients.
