In response to the significant loss of jobs in Douglas County from the Covid-19 pandemic, Peaslee Tech will provide no-cost access for eligible Douglas County residents to livable wage job training programs. The Raise Income Security & Equity (RISE) Douglas County program provides no-cost tuition to any Douglas County resident who has lost their job due to the Covid-19 pandemic or qualify as low income households, until the $200,000 fund is exhausted.
RISE Douglas County program participants will be identified in cooperation with the Lawrence Workforce Center, the Kansas Department of Children and Families, the eight Public School Districts with students in Douglas County, and the Lawrence Branch of the NAACP. The Peaslee Tech RISE Douglas County eligible programs include on-campus offerings only.
