 A study funded by the federal government is being conducted to determine how training opportunities help people improve their skills and find better jobs. During the study, eligible applicants will be randomly selected to participate in the program. Not all eligible applicants will be chosen to participate in these opportunities, but will be able to enroll in any other community services or programs for which they qualify.

The WATCH Project Continues!

The Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit is pleased to announce that the WATCH Project has been approved to continue through September 2020.

The project is supported by a Health Profession Opportunity Grant (HPOG) from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families .

We will provide updates on our progress as we transition into the next generation of WATCH.

The WATCH Project provides a variety of academic and social support services to income-eligible individuals to enter or move up in a high-priority health care career. Meeting local health care industry needs, the program increases skills, provides critical services and moves participants toward self-sufficiency.

The WATCH Project helps supply the health care industry with qualified caregivers and nursing professionals who are compassionate, skilled and dedicated.
