FCS9186: Putting Knowledge to Work: Outcome Performance of the UF IFAS Welfare-to-Work Initiative

Figure 4. The percent of participant completions reporting jobs is shown in Figure 4. Fifty percent of the participants completing one or more courses reported having a job. Green Futures shows the largest percent of participants reporting jobs, 64 percent, although Green Futures has the second fewest number of course completions, n=33, as shown in Figure 3. The high percentage of Food Safety participants reporting jobs, 57 percent, may be due to the fact that the Food Safety training now includes the Florida mandated Food Handler component, which is also taught by the UF/IFAS WtW instructors after they become certified to teach the Food Handler course.
