MAX Minutes on the English Language Learners Initiative

January 27 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

The Metro Atlanta eXchange for Workforce Solutions (MAX) is hosting the MAX Minutes on the English Language Learners Initiative webinar on Friday, January 27th, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, foreign-born persons account for more than 10 percent of Georgia’s population. And 14.3 percent of persons age 5 years and older have a language other than English spoken at home.

In the Fall of 2020, the team at WorkSource Cobb decided to focus on helping English Language Learners (ELL) after hearing about their unmet needs through a study by Emory University on removing jurisdictional barriers to economic mobility in metro Atlanta.
