Clark County’s Workforce program and two other metro-area Workforce programs on Tuesday announced the launch of a training and jobs program for the long-term unemployed and veterans seeking mid- to high-level careers in information and manufacturing fields.

ReBoot NW is the name of the program launched by the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative, which operates WorkSource centers in Clark, Cowlitz and Wahkiakum counties and Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties in Oregon. The program is funded with an $8.5 million U.S. Department of Labor grant that’s tied to a federal Ready to Work initiative.

With the full launch, all WorkSource centers in the metro region are now accepting applications for ReBoot NW. Each WorkSource center hosts a ReBoot NW career coach to help clients build a customized training and employment plan. ReBoot NW services are tailored to individual needs and include everything from r?sum? and networking help, to training scholarships, internships and work experiences, the collaborative says.
