WIN is a regional contact for the Michigan Learning & Education Advancement Program (MiLEAP) organized by the State of Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity’s Office of Employment & Training.
MiLEAP assists job seekers from short- and mid-term education and training programs to high-skill, high-wage employment and career pathways, resulting in industry-recognized credential and reduced educational debt.
Focusing on individuals who are dislocated, underemployed, essential workers, living in distressed rural and urban communities and are economically disadvantaged. Additionally, the program creates MiLEAP Navigators who provide job seekers with assistance in assessing and overcoming barriers, identifying resources, and providing guidance and support.
Participants will receive individualized competency-based assessments and learning plans that include skills assessments, remote learning opportunities, high school and industry-recognized credential attainment and contextual learning opportunities.
Michigan employers will be engaged in MiLEAP by joining multi-employer consortia to address regional workforce needs and advance existing employees through re- and up-skilling.
