Developing Tomorrow’s Talent Today
Northeast Indiana Works, the region’s non-profit workforce development organization, provides public and private financial and employment resources for education and skills training to meet the needs of regional industries.
Each year, we serve more than 20,000 individuals and more than 1,500 employers in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Grant, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties.
We operate and staff northeast Indiana’s 11 WorkOne Northeast career centers; oversee two youth-oriented career development programs; fund and manage employer-focused training programs to enhance the skills of existing workers; and help facilitate community-based career pathway initiatives.
We are governed by a board of directors, which includes regional educators, business representatives, economic development officials, state and local government leaders, and organized labor. Our operational, funding and service delivery policies are guided by the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which seeks to increase access to employment, education, training and support services for youth and adults. WIOA promotes work-based learning opportunities, such as apprenticeships and internships, and encourages the development of career pathway strategies. (See the WIOA equal opportunity statement in English and Spanish here and our federal performance measures here.)
