DWD Launches "Welcome to the Workforce" Initiative with Webinar, Speakers Series for Teens, Parents, and Employers

28 Mar 2023


Teens are an important part of Wisconsin's labor force – with nearly 60% of state teens aged 16-19 working. Meanwhile, April marks a significant uptick in job-seeking activities for teens, and the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development has planned a month-long "Welcome to the Workforce" outreach initiative for students, parents, and employers.

DWD kicks off Welcome to the Workforce April 4, 2023, with a virtual panel discussion from 2-3 p.m. featuring representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development's Equal Rights and Youth Apprenticeship programs. Register for the panel on Eventbrite.
