Make your work(force) possible.

Our workforce development programs have supported hundreds of workers in South Central Wisconsin communities—and they depend on the generosity of supporters like you. Your unrestricted (and tax-deductible) donation to the Workforce Development Board can help us connect more individuals to employment and improve education and training opportunities for our local workforce.

Support Middle College

Middle College is a local workforce development initiative supported by the Workforce Development Board and its technical college partners to prepare and transition young adults for postsecondary education and career pathways in the working world.

Since 2010, we’ve invested more than $1.5 million using U.S. Department of Labor funding to support more than 300 Middle College students studying tracks in manufacturing, healthcare and culinary arts. This continued investment will help more young adults gain valuable industry work experience and career exposure, all while earning technical college credits before even graduating high school.

With your generous contribution, we’ll focus on serving more young adults in their journey to pursue career pathways that lead to family-sustaining wages and high-growth careers. Not only does your donation help families in our communities, but you’ll be helping to build a skilled talent pipeline that’s needed by companies right here in our region.
