Workforce Wayne adds new training lab

Workforce Wayne is a non-profit organization with a mission to create a more effective workforce delivery system through developing career opportunities, and to support lifelong learning in county residents. It is supported by several grants: a $95,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, another $100,000 grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development and a $99,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Business Enterprise program.

“About 25% of our funding comes from the businesses in the area,” Birmelin said.
