Operation 5,000 is an initiative SOWELA has embarked upon to grow enrollment at the College. By 2016, our goal is to enroll 5,000 students in order to provide Southwest Louisiana with skilled and qualified workers to meet the needs of the workforce. More than ever, SOWELA will play a vital role in our local economy by helping to ensure that local citizens are being trained and educated so they may obtain higher paying jobs to best support their families.
