The San Pablo Economic Development Corporation (EDC) is administering a federally funded Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program that can help local residents find a new job.
“We offer free job search assistance, case management, and professional training services to the public,” according to EDC.
WIOA also has funds available to help pay for training costs, and can help job-seekers find the right training program to advance their career goals. The purpose of WIOA is to help members of the community find high-wage, high-growth careers, and to help ensure that workers can sustain their jobs and advance in their fields, to obtain better positions and pay.
For the time being, in the interest of public health, San Pablo EDC is providing services via phone and email only. WIOA orientations take place Tuesdays at 10 a.m. sharp, via Zoom (or telephone), and last 20 minutes. To participate, Join via Zoom at:
