A total of 282 parents and family members of Cottondale, Lake View, and Vance Elementary students attended an outreach event at Cottondale Elementary on Thursday, February 15, 2018. Of those job seekers, 232 were registered and processed through our online training and employment tracking system that night. This event resulted in 40 job seekers being directed to a local employer, SMP, for direct hiring and 40 more being guided to the Ready to Work (RTW) program with a direct hire agreement pending their graduation from the RTW program. The remaining 102 job seekers are streamlined into one of our RTW pathways that result in employment with other businesses and industries based on qualifications.

West AlabamaWorks had two more outreach events in Brookwood and West Blocton the following Tuesday and Thursday.
