Why We Exist
What differentiates WorkTexas from other secondary and post-secondary training programs?
- Industry will drive our decisions and programs.
- Training people with life skills to complement the technical skills.
- Continue to provide wraparound support to our alumni in these life skills after the technical training ends.
- All classes are tuition-free.
WorkTexas, a new 501c3 non-profit, initially will have one location for the Houston area at Gallery Furniture at 6006 North Freeway, with satellite campuses possibly in the future. The target student population will be high school age and older, who are looking to learn the specific skills necessary to obtain a job, keep that job, and advance in their career. Students younger than 16 will have the opportunity to shadow various industry professions (to determine their interest), as well as focus on the academics needed to graduate from high school. Training will be available to older individuals as well who do not need or want a high school degree.
