Workforce Solutions (WFS) Cameron offers financial assistance to support training in targeted and high-demand occupations. Funding is available through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which was created to assist youth and adults in accessing employment, training and support services. The goal of WIOA is to enable individuals to acquire the necessary skills or credentials to obtain and retain full-time employment. WFS pairs training and employment services with essential supportive services to ensure that individuals are prepared for current and emerging careers.
The Business Services Unit can assist with recruiting, screening and referring qualified job seekers. We can also provide consulting on special topics such as finding resources for funding and education. As your business changes, so will your Human Resource needs. Let our consultants help you with any questions and training issues for new and existing employees.
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) purchases childcare for eligible families through Child Care Delivery Services. This program helps parents who are striving to become self-sufficient by giving them more choices in childcare arrangements and helping them find qualified caregivers. The system benefits families, providers and communities.
The Community Engagement Team conducts monthly workshops on Job Readiness (how to land a job) and Soft Skills (how to become a better employee), with the goal of preparing jobseekers and employees in Cameron County for the challenges and expectations of today’s job market. In addition, these workshops are available upon request to educators, counselors, and career coaches, in the form of Train-The-Trainer sessions.
