The goal of the Transformative Workforce Academy (TWA) program is to improve the Saint Louis community and make jobs and training available to disadvantaged populations. A large Metropolitan area such as St. Louis contains population groups that face significant obstacles to employment, and the Saint Louis University TWA program can play an important role in helping these populations find and secure jobs. The population groups include: Dislocated Workers, Single Parents, Incarcerated in Prison, Youth Programs, Immigrants and Refugees, Re-entry Program, Individuals with Disabilities and Veterans. These populations provide an opportunity for Saint Louis University to put its Mission statement to use in a practical manner, and many of the concepts/programs are transferable to other groups.
