Many of the companies that partnered with ULGA this year provided a platform that allowed the ULGA team to conduct pre-screening/ assessments and as a result 380 ULGA participants were pre-screened and assessed for employment opportunities. A total of 318 ULGA participants of those 380 were referred to employment within various industries.
