Workforce Development

The Yates County Workforce Development One-Stop Center is a cooperative effort with partners in the Finger Lakes Works Workforce Development System in the four-county Finger Lakes region of Yates, Ontario, Seneca and Wayne counties. We serve both job seekers and employers in programs supported by Title I of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Workforce Development also contracts with the Yates County Department of Social Services to operate their employment programs.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Programs

In partnership with the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board and other area agencies, this program provides a wide variety of activities to assist adults and dislocated workers through core, intensive and training services.
