What is the Worker Connection Program?

We provide free navigation services to expand career opportunities at the local level. Our Career Navigators will work with you to identify your interests, values, and conditions of work. Then, we will help connect you to resources, trainings, and in-demand career paths in your area. We also partner with organizations and businesses to support their workforce needs. The Worker Connection Program is active in Milwaukee County (WDA 2) and the Bay area (WDA 5).

Career Navigation

Everyone can work and there is a job for everyone. Learn how to activate your skills and find career paths that match your interests and needs. We will help you navigate the resources and services available in your community to connect you with good jobs.

Eligibility Requirements

Worker Connection is free and available to all residents of Milwaukee, Brown, Door, Florence, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, Shawano, and Sheboygan counties.



Our goal is to improve equity and economic mobility across Wisconsin. We want to bolster the services and supports already available to job seekers in their communities. Let us help you find good jobs and opportunities near you.
