Workforce Training Solutions: The Clackamas Workforce Partnership and its partners provide various opportunities for training both existing and new employees.

Regional Workforce Collaborative: Because we recognize the importance of integrating a regional perspective into the work we do, the Clackamas Workforce Partnership makes up one-third of the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative (CWWC). Together, the Collaborative aligns capabilities and resources to improve the region’s ability to leverage and layer funding streams, to coordinate ideas and strategies, to pursue resources and fill gaps, to link workforce supply and industry demand, and enable life-long learning and advancement. Both at a local regional level, Clackamas Workforce Partnership is working to develop strategies to best serve sectors that have the most need and potential for workforce development. This includes Manufacturing, Health Care, and Technology.

Certified Work-Ready Communities: Oregon's Certified Work Ready Communities (CWRC) initiative aligns education, workforce and economic development strategies for job creation. It provides a competitive advantage for Clackamas County and Oregon Businesses. On this page you can learn more about the initiative and how to become a supporting business.

Hiring Young People: Help develop our local workforce by hiring local young people. WorkSource Clackamas promotes the hiring of teens and young adults for part-time work during the school year -- and summer internships and full-time jobs -- through our program partner C-TEC.
