WorkSource Atlanta has received a grant designed to serve City of Atlanta residents who were impacted by layoffs due to COVID-19 and provide them with an opportunity to participate in their Work Experience (WEx) program.
Funded by the US Department of Labor, the WorkSource Atlanta WEx program provides a subsidized paid work experience, for eligible participants to gain training at a company in a field of experience or potential interest. The WEx assignments would allow the participants to work up to 40 hours per week, and WorkSource Atlanta would pay the participant an hourly wage, up to 16 weeks.
