Workforce Transitions

Workforce Transitions

Everyone's educational journey is different. We find solutions to help people transition into the workforce. Adults, dislocated workers and teenagers come to us for help with career and training services. Some supports we provide to eligible participants include:

  • Office technology for career exploration and job search. This includes computers with internet access, printers, fax machines, telephones and accessibility equipment for individuals with physical, visual and hearing impairments.
  • Career planning for employment and training and community referrals.
  • Financial assistance of up to $10,000 for suitable and eligible students enrolled in a high demand occupation.
  • Weekly workshops to develop job search skills, basic computer literacy, assistance with resume and cover letter writing.

For both job seekers and businesses, the DeKalb Workforce Development Office provides valuable resources.

WIOA offers out-of-school youth an opportunity to participate in training that will assist in obtaining employment through selected short term programs.
