Since 1966 EATA has maintained strong relationships with other community based service providers, educational institutions and our local business community.
Through these relationships, we have identified areas where there are gaps in training and have develop curriculum to address the changing needs of both job seekers and businesses.
Neighborhood involvement helps EATA to forge relationships with local community based organizations to provide a seamless transition to our shared participants. This approach leads to better trained candidates with the skills and experience they need to meet our region’s workforce needs. EATA continues to cultivate and provide multi-cultural services to the diverse population in South Central Wisconsin. EATA has been successful because of their dedicated employees who strive to help those in need to see the possibilities and assist them in getting there.
