Mission Statement

The Pike County Workforce Development Agency strives to bridge the gap between employers and job seekers. Our approach seeks to build upon the close working relationship already in place between the local partners involved in workforce and economic development. We will work to establish an integrated and unified methodology to meet the needs of employers both locally and regionally and at the same time help to create a well prepared/trained labor pool. We will continue to enhance the level of services for all our customers, increase accessibility to information, and reduce the barriers and confusion faced by both employers and job seekers.

Career Development

The Pike County Workforce Development Agency is a federally funded county agency operating under the guidelines set forth in the Workforce Investment Act. Our purpose is to bring together regional employers and local job seekers. There are no fees for our services. Individuals needing intensive or training services must meet eligibility guidelines established by the US Department of Labor and The Pocono Counties Workforce Investment Board.
