WorkSource at Fairchild

All veterans, military personnel and their spouses can be served at WorkSource. However the SWC is committed to providing this priority population with enhanced offerings by locating WorkSource staff on-site at the Fairchild Airman and Family Readiness Center. Many separating military members wish to remain in the Spokane area, and our intent is to help connect them with local businesses that need their talent, work ethic, and in-demand skillset.

Pathway Planning Guide

The Pathway Planning Guide is a tool we developed that links training programs at the Community Colleges of Spokane to the careers those programs can lead to.

Expanded Apprenticeship Offerings

We are continually working to expand pathways for people to access living-wage careers and help businesses with succession planning. Expanding apprenticeships is one key strategy for achieving those goals.
