Ohio To Work initiative expands into Toledo, other cities
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Ohio leaders announced the expansion of the Ohio To Work initiative into Toledo and other cities.
Ohio To Work launched in Cleveland in September 2020 as a pilot initiative to provide those seeking employment with career opportunities that increase income and improve quality of life. The program has created pathways to in-demand jobs for thousands of Ohioans through personalized career coaching, accelerated training options, local employer connections, career tools, and more.
“The Ohio To Work initiative helps employers access a skilled and highly-trained workforce while providing job seekers access to well-paying, long-lasting careers,” Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said. “By expanding this innovative, partnerships-based program, we’ll be able to give more Ohioans access to the tools and supports they need to find meaningful employment and support Ohio’s rapid and equitable economic resurgence.”
