The Madisonville Community College Workforce Connections program serves individuals between the ages of 18-24, in Hopkins, Caldwell, Muhlenberg, Lyon, Livingston, Christian, Todd, and Crittenden County.
We partner with local business and industries to train participants so that they are better prepared to enter the workforce. We provide occupational skills training and paid internship or work experience so local business industry leaders can see participants at work in their desired career field. Upon placement into paid work experience positions, participants are paid equal wage at current hourly rate when assigned to their 500-man-hour contract for work experience or until they earn $5000.00.
The Workforce Connections program is a federally funded program sponsored by the West Kentucky Workforce Board.
