Knoxville Area Urban League


Earn: Workforce Development and Training

Every willing adult in America should have a job that allows them to earn a decent wage and provide a reasonable standard of living for themselves and their families.

Every adult in America should have equal access to the resources that enhance job readiness and job mobility, including post-secondary education and other investments in human capital.

Core programs:

  • Assessments
  • Computer Training
  • Employment readiness
  • Workforce counseling and job placement
  • Customer service training
  • In-House Job Board

In today’s economic climate, we are experiencing a dramatic increase in the demand for our services. As a result of the down economy, more and more people are competing in a very challenging job market. We are focused on identifying employment partners and serving as a source of quality applicants for existing employment opportunities. We also work to ensure that our clients have access to the resources they need to maintain a competitive edge in this market. At the Knoxville Area Urban we have several hiring events and job fairs for potential employees to meet and interview for career opportunities.
