Creating and expanding opportunities for economic success to those we serve.
The United States Department of Labor, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, the Social Security Administration, and Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity have established initiatives to inform and work with employers, service providers, and people with disabilities in a number of ways.
Rock River Training Corporation utilizes online disability resources accessed through the Illinois WorkNet portal and through the Disability Works Training Institute. RRTC staff located at the Rockford Workforce Connection Center work with adults and youth with disabilities who choose to work. Our goal is to help the disabled maximize their economic self-sufficiency through employment.
Rock River Training Corporation staff help promote comprehensive One Stop Center services by breaking down barriers that keep people with disabilities from finding jobs. RRTC and other Workforce Connection partner agencies work directly with employers to meet labor market demands. Through employer education and job matching, employers can find the right employee for the right job. Through information and referral, people with disabilities can find the right kind of job training or job placement program.
Rock River Training is an equal opportunity employer and complies with all state and federal nondiscrimination laws in the administration of its programs, and requires the same of all program service providers.
Program funds are provided through a contract with Rock River Training Corporation and by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the U.S. Department of Labor. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
