PROJECT OVERVIEW

Lane Community College’s Brighter Futures Project is designed to help dislocated workers acquire 21st century job skills and to assist them in obtaining jobs that require those skills.

  • Expand Oregon Pathways to Adult Basic Skills (OPABS) contextualized math, writing, and reading curriculum for selected career technical areas of high demand. 
  • Help students find jobs with career advising and job acquisition skills, such as job search, resume writing, and interviewing techniques, through the Workforce Network  of Lane County.
  • Monitor student outcomes and help students obtain jobs by developing follow-up protocols with graduates and employers.
  • Leverage funds from other agencies to provide services, such as child care, transportation, housing, and academic scholarships.
