Unidos @ Work and Highline College Prepare Students for the Workforce

Highline College and El Centro de la Raza have partnered to help Highline College students earn credits through our Unidos @ Work 7-week course at our Federal Way location. As housing affordability issues have led to a shift in demographics, this course provides job training, digital literacy skills, employment assistance, and supportive services for bilingual program participants looking to enter the workforce. As Unidos @ Work graduate Luis Guarnis said, “We are working with Excel, PowerPoint, software, and Internet. [These tools are] very helpful and ha[ve] changed a part of my life.”

The next cohort for the Unidos @ Work program begins on March 2, and we have some exciting news to share! Upon participants’ completion, they are eligible for a total of 22 credits:

+ Cert – OS and Hardware Fundamentals (5 credits)
MOS – Outlook – Microsoft Outlook (2 credits)
MOS – Word – Microsoft Word (2 credits)
MOS – Power Point – Microsoft Power point (3 credits)
MOS – Excel – Microsoft Excel (5 credits)
MOS – Access – Microsoft Access (5 credits)
