ABOUT US
Kitsap, Clallam and Jefferson Counties formed a consortium, the Olympic Consortium that plans and develops programs and administers contracts under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The Olympic Consortium Board works with the Olympic Workforce Development Council to provide policy guidance and oversight of local employment programs.   The Olympic Consortium Board and the Olympic Workforce Development Council share joint responsibility for policy and oversight of the consortium.
   
Services PROGRAM SERVICES INCLUDES
  • Job search help
  • Career skills assessment
  • Reading and math skills upgrading
  • Job placement assistance

Services are provided to over 700 economically disadvantaged teens and adults and dislocated workers each year in Kitsap County.

The program, which is entirely federally funded, administers approximately $2,000,000 under grant agreements from the state.

In addition to the above job services, Kitsap County residents who are age 55 and over may be eligible for the Title V Senior Employment Program. This program provides part-time paid community service training opportunities to older workers who are in economic and social need. Title V fosters individual economic self-sufficiency through subsidized training and subsequent placement into unsubsidized jobs.

Kitsap County Aging and Long Term Care currently contracts with WorkSource of Kitsap County to provide senior employment services. For more information please call (360) 337-4756
