Workforce Training

In Washington County, the average family of four needs to earn at least $65,000 a year in order to meet all their needs, yet the median wage is only $35,000. One proven way to close this gap is with a better-paying job. Our workforce training programs work with clients to identify career opportunities that lead to living wage jobs. With support and resources, we help people take an important step towards self-sufficiency.
