Wyoming Works

Wyoming Works provides programs and resources for adult students to learn a skill and secure employment. The program makes available individual grants for students enrolling in approved programs at a Wyoming community college.

The non-credit programs were approved by the Wyoming Community College Commission at their October meeting. Please take a look and pass the information along far and wide!

This brochure was developed in partnership with the Wyoming EXCELS committee within the Wyoming Business Alliance, the Wyoming Community College Commission, and WACCT.

Wyoming innovative partnership

WIP was created with the goal to modernize and focus Wyoming’s efforts to develop a resilient workforce and economy. Bringing together the state’s community colleges, the University of Wyoming, Wyoming Business Council, and Department of Workforce Services, WIP objectives will offer graduates more opportunities to stay in or return to Wyoming as a result of a developed ecosystem that drives innovation, skills development, and introductions to new jobs across a diversified industry portfolio.
