Program Overview

Goals

To assist job seekers (Adults, Dislocated Workers and Youth) in developing and implementing a plan to obtain employment. This may include formal training, job search skill development, case management, work experiences, on-the-job training and more.

Provide Youth with the opportunity to develop job skills, have the opportunity for work experiences and other experiences to develop the social and behavioral skills required to succeed in today's workplace. The primary focus of this goal is attained through a Program that allows youth to have work experiences, participate in other developmental and academic enrichment activities and ultimately earn scholarships for post secondary training that results in self-sufficient employment.


The delivery of partner services through a Career Center system is critical to the effective delivery of services at a local level. Workforce Investment Area (WIA) services alone cannot meet the needs of many of our customers. It is critical WIA services be delivered in coordination with other WIA partner services (Adult Education, Vocational Rehabilitation, TN Dept. of Labor and Workforce Development, Dept. of Human Services and more) in a fashion that meets the customer needs.

The agency conducts GED and literacy assessments, and will make referrals to other literacy agencies, when needed.
