WCS will utilize community partnerships to provide vocational exploration and training for out of work adults. Participants will visit businesses and industries and participate in job shadowing, internships and other work-based learning opportunities. High school students can earn a NC Career Readiness Certificate, a nationally recognized credential that confirms possession of basic workplace skills in applied math, reading and locating for information. Adult clients can earn Job Readiness certification in specific trade programs. The Washington County Career Readiness Council will be formed to support the growth of vocational and educational programs in Washington County and promote growth in the local economy by creating a job ready workforce.
