Workforce Partnership Program

In 1998, Jackson County Industrial Development Corporation (JCIDC) created the Workforce Partnership. 

The goal is to bring industry, schools, elected local officials and economic develop leaders together to make the county’s employers more competitive.

Working with our local and regional partners, we have created a model that demonstrates how communities can form networks of industry, education, economic development, government, and private organizations working together to make real and sustainable progress in developing an educated and skilled workforce that is prepared to meet industry employment needs.
