The Literacy Council is expanding its Workplace Literacy Program in collaboration with employers in Frederick County from the hospitality, restaurant, and other industries to support English language classes for their employees. The purpose of the program is to empower limited English language proficient employees to find and keep sustainable employment, contributing to achieving greater financial stability and impacting the lives of their families. The program will also help employers identify and retain an educated workforce and reduce turnover, thereby strengthening the entire economic fabric of the community.
For several years, the Literacy Council conducted workplace classes for kitchen workers from downtown Frederick restaurants and Dutch’s Daughter Restaurant. This program expanded to include workers in the hospitality sector from local hotels, and we are working to expand to other industries. The instructional content focuses on English speaking and comprehension, with an emphasis on workplace vocabulary, workplace skills, interaction among staff, and overall basic conversation skills.
