(Grow and Retain Our Workforce)

Tri-County Career Center, the Nelsonville Chamber of Commerce and the Area 14 Workforce Development Board are hosting an informative meeting to build a framework for high-quality workforce development and recruiting skilled workers:
Across many sectors, local employers are having a hard time filling open job opportunities, retaining workers and attracting youth to their specified career fields. Please join your local business leaders and educators to learn about “growing and retaining our own workforce” through work-based learning opportunities, including job shadowing, internships, co-ops, pre-apprenticeships, and apprenticeship programs.
This free workshop will include opportunities to:
    • Hear about the best practices and established models throughout Ohio and around the country;
    • Connect business and industry partnerships with their educational partners to provide more work-based learning and employment opportunities, along with technical assistance for establishing pre-apprenticeship programs;
    • Discuss the barriers and accountability to youth employment;
    • Gain supportive tools, planning templates and guidelines; and
    • Share knowledge and network with other professionals in the field
