Funding job training programs since 1974.

During this holiday season, I would like to offer my gratitude and thanks to all of our board members, partners, job seekers, employers and supporters.


This time of year can be challenging for families struggling to make ends meet. It is through the continued work and dedication of the Job Centers and training providers in our region that individuals find the training and support they need. For those in need of assistance with a career transition, remember that our funded partners are here to help.


Again, thank you for your ongoing support of workforce development in our region. I wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season.
