Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana Foundation: Seeking proposals for qualified bilingual instructorsfon Digital Literacy Training

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana Foundation (HCCLF) is seeking proposals from qualified bilingual instructors to deliver cohort-based Digital Literacy Training. The Digital Literacy Program has been developed by UNIDOSUS and is being administered through the HCCLF by means of a grant.

Section 1: Strategic Goal The mission of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana Foundation (HCCLF) is to foster the continued economic growth, development, and promotion of education within the Hispanic community by building capacity and helping find jobs and workforce opportunities in the Greater New Orleans Area.

In underserved communities, its programs teach participants, regardless of their age, to garner the skills needed for success in jobs of the future. The foundation strives to inspire program participants to create better futures for themselves and for their communities.

Through the Digital Literacy Training program the Foundation aims to bridge the digital divide in underserved communities to improve social mobility.

Section 2: Guidelines Decisions regarding program instructors and support provided are the sole discretion of HCCLF and are final.

This proposal should be submitted to HCCLF c/o Mayra Pineda to the following email: with a subject line: 2020 Digital Literacy Program Proposal.

RFP Proposals must be submitted by December 20, 2019 by close of business. Proposals received after that date will not be considered.

Section 3: Scope, Focus and Objectives Scope The purpose of the Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from qualified instructors to deliver bilingual digital literacy training as per the specified modules developed by UNIDOSUS. UNIDOSUS has provided HCCLF with the PowerPoint presentations to be used along with recommended handouts; however, instructors will have permission to deliver the program as they see fit based on the needs and skill levels of the program participants, in so long as the integrity of the program itself is not compromised. Note that all PowerPoint presentations and handouts are in English but instructor may deliver additional information in Spanish as needed and/or for clarification of information presented.

The modules are to be delivered in six 8-week cohorts commencing January 2020 and ending by March 31, 2021. Typically the training will occur 3x/week for 3 hours/day. The cohorts may alternate with evening classes for cohort 1, daytime classes for cohort 2, etc. based upon demand. HCCLF will determine the specified training dates and timeframes with some input from the instructor.

The Digital Literacy Program modules are as follows:
 Goal Setting
 Computer Basics and Digital Literacy
 MS Office, Google Suite, Resume and Cover Letter
 Excel and Budgeting
 PowerPoint
 Financial Literacy
 Interview Skills
 Job Readiness

Upon selection, instructor will receive the UNIDOSUS PowerPoint presentations to review and prepare for delivery. Instructor will have the discretion to invite guest speakers as desired, such as job recruiters, banking representatives, etc.

Employment experience is one of the strongest catalysts for promoting economic opportunity. By connecting the most vulnerable populations to developmental training and opportunities to obtain meaningful jobs, participants are set on trajectories to improve their financial lives and those of generations to come.

The goal is to continue to be a leader in providing a literate and skilled workforce for several industries. This training provides the work-ready and soft skills critical in job search, interview prep, placement and retention. In regard to career counseling, employers are consulted via personal visits, phone conversations, and electronic communications to determine the areas of job placement needs, the requirements for the positions needed, and the most frequent positions generally needed.

Objectives & Outcomes
As per grant specifications, HCCLF must service 90 program participants, graduate 68 participants, and place in jobs or advance to education 48 of the participants over the course of the grant period, which ends March 31, 2021.

Instructor must be prepared to periodically report progress to UNIDOSUS on targeted outcomes, typically quarterly, and participate in mandatory webinar/conference calls to share best practices in program delivery, recruitment activities, and other items of interest.

Marketing/Public Relations opportunities are a key component of this program in order to recruit program participants.

Instructor must agree to collaborate with HCCLF on PR and marketing related activities, including gathering and publicizing participant stories, program results and program impact. Instructors are expected to support the periodic publication of participant stories and testimonials. Any external announcements will be mutually agreed upon.

Section 4: Requirements
 Fluency in English and Spanish
 Prior training experience

Appendix A: Guidelines
Applicant’s response to this proposal indicates his/her understanding and agreement that the proposal is not an offer to contract by HCCLF with applicant. HCCLF reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to withdraw or amend the proposal; to reject or disqualify proposals; to select or not select applicants; and/or to identify one or more proposal participants with whom HCCLF wants to solicit additional or supplemental proposals.

HCCLF reserves the right to reject any or all proposals and is not obligated to detail to applicants the reason for the selection or rejection of any proposal.

In the event of a selection, HCCLF will give notice to the selected applicant. However, HCCLF will not provide information concerning any selection, if any, to non-selected applicants.

Tulane University Center for Public Service: Understanding Your Program: How a Simple “Program Roadmap” Can Make Planning and Evaluation More Useful workshop, October 8th, 9am – 12pm

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your interest in the  Understanding Your Program: How a Simple “Program Roadmap” Can Make Planning and Evaluation More Useful workshop on Monday, October 8th, 9:00 am-12:00 pm at the Small Center, 1725 Baronne Street.  You may park in the lot at Baronne and Euterpe. Breakfast will be served.
Description: Everyone is under pressure to show the impact of their efforts.  Why not use an approach that not only helps you make the case to funders and stakeholders, but, in the process, gives you the understanding YOU need to make immediate improvements to your efforts.  Tom Chapel, who is the Chief Evaluation Officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and has been helping public and non-profit programs do planning and evaluation for several decades, is returning to repeat his series of popular workshops.

We look forward to seeing you then!
