Mobile Workforce Centers

The Arkansas Division of Workforce Services has a fantastic resource to meet Arkansans’ workforce needs. ADWS’s Rapid Response Program operates five Mobile Workforce Centers and four “mini” Mobile Workforce Centers. Each Mobile Workforce Center has full internet connectivity and is equipped with computers, printers, copiers, and helpful staff. All the Mobile Workforce Centers include a computer with access to Jobs Application with Speech (JAWS) software, and most mobile units are accessible to individuals with disabilities.

Utilization of Mobile Workforce Centers

Increase Access to Services

The utilization of Mobile Workforce Centers was born out of a goal to ensure communities had access to Workforce Centers and ADWS services. Arkansas currently has 26 brick-and-mortar Centers, but the units are taken to the rural areas across the state so individuals can more easily access workforce services like job search and application assistance, Arkansas JobLink (AJL) registration, resume creation, and help with unemployment insurance claims. The Mobile Workforce Centers have established an awesome reputation of support throughout the state and are frequently in demand to serve the communities of Arkansas.

Dislocated Worker Assistance

When a company is downsizing or closing, the Rapid Response Team can provide information and connections to various services and programs to assist workers during their transition. When there is time to provide expanded services for workers, the Mobile Workforce Centers are brought in for on-site assistance at job fairs or transition centers. The RESEA program has also worked to have the units provide job readiness training.

Support Reentry Activities

The units also support reentry activities by assisting individuals who are still incarcerated, recently released, or within 30 days of release. The units help with AJL information and registration, job search, resume creation, mock interviews, and information on careers and small businesses. For individuals who are 30 days to release, a Quick Guide provides a snapshot of how much preparation is needed to take the Career Readiness Certification assessment and if there is a need for additional help through the Key Train modules or a referral to Adult Education.

Job Fairs and Events

The Mobile Workforce Centers are often requested for job fairs, hiring events, conferences, and other events so attendees can receive and/or learn more about ADWS services. Training sessions, interviews, workshops, and assessments have also been held on the mobile units.
