UNITED, WE STAND FOR HELPING OUR WORKFORCE GROW

Giving people the resources they need to succeed

The Need

At United Way of Warren County, we don’t just we see people for who they are, but also, for what they can become, when given the resources they need.  Thanks to a collaborative effort with local businesses and organizations, we are able to provide the connections necessary to improve the skills and knowledge of our residents so that they are sufficiently prepared for employment with the many outstanding businesses in Warren County.

The Solution

Our Students Today, Our Leaders Tomorrow

Workplace Development Initiative

It’s a brave new world for those getting ready for life after high school. Some will head off to college, others to trade school. But for those jumping headfirst into the workforce, how much do they know about what lies ahead? How much do their parents really know?

Today’s Workplace Awareness is a yearlong initiative designed to provide high school students with information on career options in the 21st century and includes:

  • Touring various worksites
  • Insights from participating employers
  • Salary and benefit trends
  • Entrepreneurialism
  • Inter-relatedness of regional, national and global economies
  • Career opportunities and pathways
  • Info on required professional development and education
  • Individual and group projects
  • Developing business communication skills

Interested in Joining Our Workforce?

United Way of Warren County is partnering with Warren County companies to create opportunities for soon to be and recent high school or college graduates. These opportunities include connections to good paying jobs, information about various career opportunities, and access to low or no cost training and education options. If you would like to stay up to date on these opportunities, please sign up for our mailing list.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
