Workforce Programs

Finding qualified talent can be a challenge for employers. Here are some resources to help you find candidates.

Just 1 Program

Just 1 is a program that partners businesses with education. It’s a community service opportunity between businesses and schools to provide students experience with job interviews. Businesses interview with the intention of offering just one student a career opportunity or internship. Last year over 400 students interviewed countywide with over 100 businesses large and small. Our goal this year is to connect even more businesses with students.

Apprenticeship Programs

Get paid to learn about a trade and get hundreds to thousands of hours of hands-on experience.

Why go through an Apprenticeship Program?

Registered Apprenticeship is a proven model of job preparation that combines paid on-the-job training (OJT) with related instruction to progressively increase workers’ skill levels and wages. Registered Apprenticeship is also a business-driven model that provides an effective way for employers to recruit, train, and retain highly skilled workers. It allows employers to develop and apply industry standards to training programs, thereby increasing productivity and the quality of the workforce. As an “earn and learn” strategy, Registered Apprenticeship offers job seekers immediate employment opportunities that pay sustainable wages and offer advancement along a career path. Graduates of Registered Apprenticeship programs receive nationally-recognized, portable credentials, and their training may be applied toward further post-secondary education.
