WHAT IS WERC?
The Workforce and Education Readiness Continuum (WERC) is a City of Austin and Travis County-funded network of community partners linked to help prepare Austin-area residents to enter or reenter today's competitive job market.
With 38 locations, WERC provides client services ranging from Adult Basic Education (ABE) and English as a Second Language (ESL) to job readiness instruction and occupational training with the goal of empowering clients with the skills they need to advance their employment opportunities and realize their economic potential.
"[WERC] not only helped me get through the most difficult time of my life but it also gave me the training and confidence I needed to be successful."
