The WorkSource Fulton team has hit the ground running in 2019. Our goals have shifted this year to accommodate the ever-changing landscape of Fulton County, and we are excited to share our new developments!
The Fulton Workforce Development Board, appointed in 2018, held their annual Board Training and Retreat at Atlanta Technical College in February. Composed of leaders from both the public and private sector, the twenty-three member board is tasked with overseeing the administration of workforce development programs in Fulton County and aligning services with the skills and jobs needed in Fulton’s strategic industries. During the training, the board heard from State and regional experts on leveraging various resources and strategies to support Fulton County residents and meet the growing needs of employers. At the conclusion of the training, the workforce board held their quarterly meeting and welcomed a presentation from the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta.
As part of the strategic vision set by the Fulton Workforce Board, Fulton County residents can now access job training and employment services at their local Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library. Through a partnership with the library system, WorkSource Fulton staff will be visiting libraries to help provide workforce development services and connect residents to services that support their career goals. Workshops on job search strategies and skills are also being offered through the partnership. Residents can learn more about these services now at the South Fulton or East Roswell branches of the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library.
We’re thrilled with the strides we have made in just the first few months of the year, and look forward to putting Fulton County residents to work in high-skill, high paying jobs in 2019!
