Laredo CARES




Laredo College and the City of Laredo have joined forces to address the need for workforce training in our community. In light of the economic impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had in our community, a skilled workforce is an essential part of revitalizing our economy. By offering new skills training, people in our community will have an increased opportunity of social mobility and financial stability, especially those who were laid-off, furloughed or underemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


This partnership will allow eligible participants to choose from a wide-ranging set of high-skilled programs and become certified in a span of less than six months. There are 18 short-term programs offered at Laredo College that have been identified due to their high-demand in the job market.

Debido al impacto económico que la pandemia del COVID-19 ha tenido en nuestra comunidad, el personal capacitado y especializado será una parte esencial para revitalizar la economía. Al ofrecer esta capacitación técnica, las personas en nuestra comunidad tendrán mejores oportunidades de movilidad social y estabilidad económica, especialmente aquellos que han sido despedidos, suspendidos o subempleados debido a la pandemia.  


Por medio de este convenio, los participantes podrán elegir entre una amplia gama de programas y podrán certificarse en el transcurso de seis meses o menos. Hay 18 programas a corto plazo que se ofrecerán en Laredo College, los cuales han sido identificados debido a su alta demanda en el mercado laboral.
