Adult Program

 

WDB 83’s adult program is for any person 18 years of age or older, considered not self-sufficient.  Adult Training Services are available to eligible individuals who have not been able to obtain employment under Career Services. Eligible individuals can attend approved vocational and professional trade schools, community college, or universities to earn secondary education certification. All training available must be in an occupation that is determined to be in-demand in the local area. Job seekers who are basic skills deficient now have priority for Adult program services along with low-income job seekers and public assistance recipients.  WDB 83’s adult program also offers work experience and on-the-job-training.  In some cases, limited financial assistance for those who are in need of basic necessities, such as childcare, transportation, clothing, tools, and uniforms is available.
