Work Ready Communities

The Work Ready Community initiative is an effort to align workforce and education to meet the economic needs of the state and local communities. It is guided by key community leaders (elected officials, economic development, business leaders, chambers of commerce, educators and workforce development, in each county).

The vision for Work Ready Communities is to attract, retain, and develop a workforce with education and fundamental skills- Workplace Documents, Applied Math and Graphic Literacy – to succeed in the 21st Century.
Having certified Work Ready Communities in the state will result in strengthening existing businesses, attracting new businesses, growing jobs and developing a strong talent pipeline for the state’s future growth nationally and globally.
