The purpose of the One Stop Career Center is:
- To provide locally planned job training and placement services for individuals who are unemployed or underemployed. Eligibility is based on past income and work history. Special programs are available for veterans, single parents, handicapped persons, migrant workers, persons receiving unemployment benefits or who have received notice of a lay off or are long-term unemployed.
- To coordinate with other agencies to create a workforce development system to better assist our community.
- To establish programs to prepare youth and adults facing serious barriers to employment for participation in the labor force by providing job training and other services that will result in increased employment and earning, increased educational and occupational skills and decreased welfare dependency, thereby improving the quality of the workforce and enhancing the productivity and competitiveness of the Nation.
The One Stop Career Center is funded by a grant from the Job and Education Partnership Board.
