WorkSource Montgomery (WSM) is the private non-profit corporation authorized by Council Resolution 18-295 as the County's designated workforce development corporation. WorkSource Montgomery has been designated to implement the County's workforce development policies established by the Workforce Development Board to promote job growth and talent attraction.

The Employment and Training Services for Immigrants program is designed to offer employment and training services directly to immigrant and refugee residents in Montgomery County. Specifically, the program will promote entrepreneurship and occupational skills to refugee and immigrant adults to help them secure employment as quickly as possible. The program will assist our clients to find employment through employment professional development, vocational training, support services, barrier remediation, and entrepreneurial and occupational skills training.

Summer RISE is an initiative led by the Montgomery County Public Schools' (MCPS) Partnerships Unit in collaboration with corporate and private businesses, educational institutions, faith-based institutions, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. Summer RISE is a four week, 40-hour program for rising MCPS juniors and seniors to participate in a live, virtual, or hybrid career-based learning opportunity during the summer. With a hybrid model, MCPS and WSM saw an increase in student program participation as well as an expanded host/employer network with the ability to host multiple students each.

Coding Our Way Home is a training component of the DOCR Montgomery County Correctional Facility Job Center program, which also includes community-based services offered at the American Job Centers and Ignite Hub. As clients participate in the Individual Service Planning processes, those with an interest in software coding will be appropriately assessed (i.e., aptitude and interests) and offered an opportunity to participate in the Coding Our Way Home program.
