Alabama Community College System is proud to be an Alabama Works partner.
In the fall of 2015, the Alabama Workforce Council undertook a statewide effort to understand the structure, function, organization, and perceptions of the Alabama workforce system. The results showed that Alabama is endowed with a plentiful state, educational, business support and other service organizations that provide training, placement and informational resources that could better serve business, industry and the public if they were organized in an effective network and unified under a common vision, mission and brand.
This new and unified system resulted from hundreds of hours of input from the workforce and educational professionals, industry leadership, families and students. Thousands of Alabamians participated in-person and online in developing the charter for AlabamaWorks.
AlabamaWorks stands for opportunity, innovation, accountability and inclusion with the vision of a better future for Alabama in which communities, business, and industry are supported in a collaborative process to build prosperity through the opportunity of meaningful work and a growing economy. The mission of Alabama Works is to recruit, train, and empower a highly skilled workforce driven by business and industry needs and to be the competitive advantage for Alabama’s economic growth.
