Workforce Training Initiative

In a partnership with Oakton Community College (OCC), the Village successfully applied for $16,000 in grant funds from the Skokie Community Foundation and the Education Foundation Supporting the Students of Niles Township for a workforce training initiative. Village Human Services staff will recommend unemployed or under-employed Skokie residents for enrollment in short-term certificate training programs at OCC to improve their wage-earning capacity. The grant funds will cover the full cost of admission, tuition, fees, books and if needed, transportation. For information call the Health and Human Services Department at 847/933-8208 or email
