Your Support Helps Us Build a Better Workforce
Education and workforce training are essential components to a thriving economy that benefits both workers and employers. The WorkPlace provides innovative solutions to current workforce challenges that change the lives of those needing and preparing for sustainable careers. We’re workforce leaders in the region because we know what employers need and build our programs to ensure our participants have the skills to be competitive candidates.
Public Job Training Funds Do Not Meet All of the Ever- Changing Needs of Our Community.
The WorkPlace looks for private investment in the state’s workforce and finds ways to leverage these private contributions and grants. Private contributions enable us to serve more people and to create innovative new programs to meet changing needs.
Contributions can be made to support these programs or other areas of speciﬁc interest. The WorkPlace is a 501(c)3 non-proﬁt organization and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.
