Adult Career Services

DWD’s Adult Career Services provides education and training scholarships to income eligible adults.  Participants work one-on-one with a counselor to connect with training that leads to occupations in sectors of the economy that have a high potential for sustained demand or growth in our area.

Services may include:

  • Short or long term training to acquire skills in a new field
  • Funding for tuition, books and fees for skill upgrading and retraining
  • On-the-job training
  • Explore your skills and connect with training and employment resources

Career Pathways Training
