Workforce Development

Workforce Development

ACAP provides workforce development support through the federal program, Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA). This landmark legislation is designed to help get youth, adults, and dislocated workers with barriers to employment, into high-quality jobs and careers. Individuals are encouraged to take an active role in managing their path to a sustainable career.  


Trained and dedicated career counselors assist job seekers with creating plans that overcome barriers and lead to employment. Plans can include training and education options or job readiness and job search activities. Individuals will be offered assessments, career decision-making strategies, workshops on resumes, cover letters and interviewing skills, job preparation and information on employability skills. Funding is available to support approved training programs (both long and short term) and support services that help people stay in school or on the job.
