The Franklin County Commissioners recognized the efforts of the County’s Youth Workforce Initiative partners. The County invested $383,000 of federal funds into seven programs for the 2015-2016 academic year, which assisted over 600 youth in reaching their goals of being college and or career ready, financially literate, globally aware, and entrepreneurial savvy.
The Franklin County Economic and Planning Department is pleased to present our 2015 Annual Report. More than just the numbers, this publication tells the story of the services our Department provides Franklin County residents and businesses to help ensure that the local economy remains strong and continues to grow.
The Economic Development and Planning Department's Youth Workforce Initiative e-newsletter series, running in conjunction with the academic calendar, highlights the activities of the federally funded programs whose main focus is youth workforce development. Photo heavy, the publication aims to express the fun that can be had while youth aspire to reach their goals of being college and career ready, financially literate, globally aware, engaged with their families, future entrepreneurs, and more!
The Economic Development and Planning Department's Community Development Partner Highlight e-newsletter series highlights the current activities and portfolio of work completed by a valued community partner with Franklin County. Community Partners strive for an approach of progressiveness and innovation when bringing their products to life. Their work is reflected in how we see our communities.
In 2012, County Commissioners introduced a new effort to target the ongoing strategic investments made by the County into workforce development, job retention and job creation: "Smart Works in Franklin County." Through incentives, entrepreneur training and financial support, Franklin County encourages the retention and growth of existing businesses and the creation of innovative new businesses.
At the same time, the County invests in efforts to grow our smart workforce and to build smart partnerships to generate new discoveries that fuel economic growth. Because of these smart investments to improve the opportunity for economic development in Franklin County, the region continues to be a magnet for attracting and retaining smart and creative talent.
