WorkTexas Training Center is a Houston-based non profit that provides a public vocational high school as well as adult trade school. In addition to teaching, we partner directly with industry employers to align what and how we train our students to meet those industry partner needs. We also partner with social service providers to support our students for success both during training and upon entering the workforce.

Workforce ready = workplace advantage

WorkTexas’ mission is to prepare high school students and adults with the skills and virtues they need to enter the workforce ready to contribute immediately to employers’ businesses, as well as advance in that field or another field of their choice.

What’s the problem?

The job skills gap is not only hindering individuals from advancing in a career, but it has negative economic impacts on local communities and even our national GDP. The push toward “college for all” has been a noble effort, but we believe career tech/mid-skills have been neglected, resulting in a gap between the skills graduates obtain and the skills employers need.
