WSSN Core Programs
The WSSN strategy helps low-income students with families reach financial stability and move up the economic ladder by bundling three distinct but related services.
Education and employment advancement -- education, job readiness, training, and placement.
Examples: Industry focused counseling; group sessions on academic and career exploration; general assistance through the career center; instruction focused on
contextual skills for a particular industry.
Income and work supports -- services that help WSSN students access the services and benefits they’re eligible for.
Examples: Accessing public benefits for families including: housing, work force, child care, financial literacy, veterans, formerly incarcerated, former foster youth and more; general assistance completing the FASFA form.
Financial services and asset building -- financial education and coaching to help students build self- sufficiency, stabilize their finances and become more economically competitive.
