A program that could provide county manufacturers with skilled workers will be the topic of a noon luncheon meeting April 12 at Marion Community Center.
More than 1,000 people in south central Kansas would be eligible to receive free training through new or expanded partnerships between employers, educational institutions, training programs, and community organizations.
The three-year program will fund projects to train workers to fill existing job openings, upgrade skills of employees in established companies, and provide skilled labor for new business development.
Contact Teresa Huffman at (620) 381-3920 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place for the luncheon.
The meeting is sponsored by Marion County Economic Development.
