Thanks to our Massachusetts partnership with the New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC), we are pleased to offer this first in a series of "STAND UP and BE COUNTED" one hour webinars for adult educators who wish to know more about the critical importance of the upcoming 2020 Census.
Between October and March, NELRC is partnering with the National Coalition for Literacy to offer a series of webinars that aim to prepare programs, teachers, and students to understand and participate safely in the Census, and to have access to some of the 500,000 temporary jobs that are required for its roll-out.
This first webinar focuses on the importance of the Census and on the enumerator jobs that will be available by April. Programs can support students in assessing their relevant skills and in applying on-line. Candidates from hard-to-count communities and/or who are bilingual are encouraged to apply!
Note: Because this webinar is being offered through NELRC and the National Coalition for Literacy, you will register online here instead of via the SABES Calendar.
This professional development activity/course is designed for:
- All adult educators who wish to learn more about the critical importance of the 2020 Census and how they can support full participation among the adult learners they serve
Census 2020 is critical! An undercount of your community will mean a loss of resources and representation for the next decade. Adult education programs like yours can make a difference.
NELRC and SABES are working with the National Coalition for Literacy to support Census 2020 awareness and capacity building efforts. This webinar will highlight California’s campaign to prepare and connect adult education learners to Census jobs.
Neil Kelly of the California Adult Education Program office will discuss the development and outcomes of work with adult education programs and students across the state. John Werner of the Sequoia Adult Education program will share their Census Enumerator job preparation program resources.
