IowaWORKSIowaWORKS—Region 15 is located at the Indian Hills Community College North Campus, directly across from Job Corps. We provide integrated services to job seekers and employers. Integration is an effort to make the workforce system more demand–driven, in order to respond to the actual needs of local economies. Our workforce center adds value to the local economy it supports. The integration model is intended to bring a greater emphasis to the skills development component of the workforce and to better prepare workers for the changing world of work.

Each Iowan who becomes a member of an integrated workforce center will be given the opportunity to discover, develop, and utilize their skills to obtain employment. We are working with the community to develop a culture of lifelong learning and skill development. This is the ultimate service vision that IowaWORKS hopes to achieve.

The IowaWORKS Center offers many free workshops on a variety of topics, including resume writing, interview strategies, basic computer skills, and keyboarding, just to mention a few. We also offer National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC) and Interview Stream.

The IowaWORKS Center offers many different services including but not limited to:

  • WIOA
  • Ticket to Work
  • Disability Navigator and Benefits Planning
  • Offender Workforce Development Specialist
