What We Do
Workforce Connections provides employment, training and support services designed to help individuals prepare for and get good jobs. We also help employers find needed workers and skill sets, as well as access useful labor market information. In addition, we provide staff support to the Workforce Development Board that administers federal Workforce Development Funds in Knox County (Local Workforce Development Area 3).
