Career Ready Training

About the Program

The Career Ready Training Program offers free training to individuals in Douglas County, who are looking for careers in advanced manufacturing, technology, logistics, and warehousing. This provides access to a new pipeline of candidates for Douglas County employers, who are looking for a trained and qualified workforce.

The program has two tracks:

  • Youth (recent high school graduates) - Classes of 2020, 2021, 2022, & 2023 from any Douglas County High School (public, private, charter or homeschool)
  • Adult (individuals at least 21 years or older)

The Career Ready Training Program is a strategic workforce development program of Elevate Douglas Economic Partnership and is funded through grant funding provided by Georgia Power.

Applications for the Youth 2023 Cohort will open April 3, 2023!

We are seeking new employer partners to help us redevelop the training curriculum. If you are interested in engaging in this effort, please email Breezy Straton at
