WorkSource Clackamas FAQ

Most WorkSource services are free and open to Clackamas County residents, ages 16 and older. Some services, like education and training programs, may be at-cost to the customer, with opportunities for full or partial financial assistance (financial assistance is based cost/length of the program and availability of funds). Some services are available only to identified “priority populations”. For example, Easter Seals only provides services for low-income adults age 55 or older; CTEC Youth Services provide services only to people ages 16 – 24. WSC staff members can provide information on these opportunities and available financial supports. 

Monthly Workshops

WorkSource Clackamas provides a monthly calendar of skill building workshops that are free and open to the public. Currently, all workshops have moved to a digital format. Workshop availability and frequency change monthly. Updated monthly calendar can be found below, and include workshop descriptions, contact information for workshop instructors, and registration links for each workshop. Some workshops teach skills, like financial literacy, resume writing, basic computer literacy, or how to use Microsoft Office programs. Other workshops provide information on community resources, like how to enroll in Oregon Health Plan (OHP) or food assistance programs (like SNAP, TANF, or WIC).
