Teach and Project Forward are described at this site. These programs
are designed to assist Hmong American bilingual paraprofessionals
in overcoming barriers to educational advancement so that they
may become certified teachers within the state of Wisconsin. This
project promotes equitable access to this underserved and underrepresented
group of citizens. The
program’s objective is to provide educational and professional
opportunities for paraprofessionals, high school graduates, and
non-traditional students of Hmong descent. In addition, existing
bilingual Hmong American teachers will have the opportunity to
advance their existing credentials through additional training
at the graduate level.
