Serving as a non-profit organization sponsored and supported by the Missouri AFL-CIO, the Missouri Works Initiative is strategically positioned to address the state’s changing workforce needs, whether those needs are:

  • Creating healthy and recovery friendly workplaces
  • Connecting laid off workers with job-search or upskilling resources for future employment
  • Or collaborating with community partners to offer innovative points of entry to traditional apprenticeship opportunities.

Our expert team, network of labor professionals, and community-based organizations stand ready to work toward the shared goal of creating economic opportunities for all Missourians.
