“Through the No Worker Left Behind program, people who are unemployed or need to improve their skills can get the college degree or certification necessary for a new job,” Granholm said. “Training is focused on occupations in high demand or in emerging industries. People also can learn how to start their own business.”
“No Worker Left Behind provides up to $5,000 a year for two years of tuition at any Michigan community college, university or other approved training program,” Granholm continued. “That means up to $10,000 for tuition.”
“The first step toward a new career is visiting your local Michigan Works! agency or the No Worker Left Behind Web site, which is michigan.gov/nwlb,” Granholm said. “As we transition to a greener, more diversified Michigan economy, we want to make sure no worker’s left behind.”
