Welcome to Workforce Tulsa.
Due to inclement weather, all of our offices will be closed on Friday, December 6th.
Workforce Tulsa fuels economic development by connecting businesses in our region with job-ready talent through public/private partnerships.
As a private-industry led board of 50 leaders from around Tulsa, Osage, Creek and Pawnee counties, the Tulsa Area Workforce Investment Board works to ensure that the workforce system - made up of employers, job seekers, trainers and educators, government agencies and non-profits - is operating as efficiently as possible so that limited resources are being utilized as effectively as possible. We know that workforce is one of the most important components of economic development for our area, and we focus on meeting the needs of industry in our market.
Christopher Stratton is an individual with multiple disabilities, which to him, seemed to be a significant barrier to employment for him. After sharing with the Cleveland County Librarian the difficulties he was having in finding employment she suggested the WIA program as a resource. Feeling discouraged and defeated, Stratton contacted the Pawhuska office to learn more about the youth program. He has been an active participant since 2010.
As a participant of the WIA Youth Program he has taken part in career club trips, workshops, and the summer youth program to help him with improving his job readiness skills.
Christopher Stratton has graduated from high school and entered post-secondary education during his enrollment. He has overcome the sense of discouragement that he first felt in seeking employment, and is now working toward his career goal. Stratton is currently enrolled in Oklahoma State University’s Mathematical Statistics Program with the intent of becoming a Professor of Statistics. He is a junior and expects to graduate in May of 2015.
