PARTNERING FOR SUCCESS
WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE
The Workforce & Business Development Program (W&B) provides all services under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), as well as provides business development services. In addition to overseeing the WIOA and Special Grant Programs that assist eligible Pike County Adults and Youth facing serious barriers to employment, the W&B also offers free income tax preparation and financial literacy classes. Some of the W&B Services include Career Readiness Workshops, Computer Classes, Occupational Classroom Training, On-the-Job Training (OJT), Apprenticeships, and Work Experience. We are also a partner of OhioMeansJobs (OMJ). The OMJ Career Center offers free resources for job search, career planning, and resume development. Services offered to area small businesses (including start-ups) are the Business Resource Network (BRN), small business classes and one-on-one technical assistance, job postings, on- and off-site interviewing, as well as the Small Business Loan Program (offering small business financing in Jackson, Pike, Ross, Scioto, Adams, Brown, and Lawrence Counties).
