On September 16, 2019, the Arkansas Workforce Center in Lonoke held a meeting to bring partners together to address workforce needs in Lonoke County and to make sure all Lonoke County citizens are aware of the resources in the area.
After discussion, an event is scheduled and will be hosted at the beginning of 2020. The purpose of the event is to help improve economic and career success for economically disadvantaged youth and adults.
