About Wyoming Work Ready Communities
ACT Work Ready Communities (WRC) empowers counties and states with process, data and tools deployed in a common workforce development framework to drive economic growth by certifying counties as work ready communities when established goals are attained.
In Wyoming, Sweetwater County is taking part in a county-led initiative to directly engage with the ACT WRC effort. They are pioneers in leading this initiative in Wyoming. Plans include expanding to a regional project including Carbon, Lincoln, Sublette, and Uinta to meet the regional employment needs.
Think of it as a docking station where all participants plug into the common county-level ACT Work Ready Community common criteria as a part of establishing county goals.
The common criteria are based upon the ACT National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) and employer engagement to create a community-based workforce development process that links, aligns and matches the county's workforce development efforts to the needs of business and industry. The ultimate goal: for all participating counties to achieve certified work ready community status.
ACT is leading this national effort and offers a year-long ACT WRC Academy to help participants share best practices, customize the national implementation framework for their own needs and build career pathways aligned to growth industries.
