Census 2020 Materials Available to Prepare Adult Learners for Census-Taker Jobs
The U.S. Census Bureau is launching the nationwide Census 2020 recruitment campaign. The California Adult Education Program has created a Census 2020 folder on the caladulted.org website to share information, documents and links related to census awareness, census job recruitment and census El Civics-related materials.
The Census Bureau needs to hire about 500,000 census-takers across the U.S. in 2020. Applying early to work as a census-taker is a great way for adult students to line up spring and summer employment opportunities.
LAUSD's Division of Adult and Career Education (DACE) has created new Civics curriculum for the 2020 Census. The curriculum will help adult learners overcome common barriers to participation in the census.
In addition, they have also created marketing materials and teacher informational resources.
Per COABE, by 2024, 48 percent of job openings will be middle-skill and 32 percent will be high-skill. This means that, five years from now, nearly 80 percent of all job openings will require more than a high school diploma!
