The Ready To Work Program serves low income student/parents in the FIVCO region of Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Greenup, and Lawrence counties in Kentucky attending ACTC.
We can help with:
Ready To Work Program services have expanded to include adult basic education students who are working toward their GEDs and high school graduates who are brushing up on some basic skills before entering college. RTW services are now available to adult basic education students to help make their transition to college a smooth and successful one in the FIVCO area of Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Greenup, and Lawrence counties.
RTW and W&L offer work opportunities both on and off campus through a work-study program. Participants gain work experience while earning extra income of $2500-$3500 per fiscal year that will not reduce their K-TAP checks. The placement of work-study students in their fields of study with both private and non-profit employers helps prepare them for the workplace and often leads to full-time employment.
In addition to work-study, RTW and WL staff can work with your K-TAP case manager to help you access resources for transportation and car repairs, child care, uniforms and work clothing, school supplies, license fees, criminal background checks and drug tests, driver’s education and a one time $250 graduation bonus for high school, GED, or college.
