WTI Employer Network

WTI utilizes its extensive employer network to assist graduates obtain interviews that lead to initial employment and a career track. WTI partners with employers to insure that the classroom and on-the-job training in our programs prepares our students to step into their post-training positions with up-to-date knowledge and team skills.


To leverage the value of its programs, WTI partners with organizations that offer certifications, sharing of best practices, advocacy, access to funding and discounts on products and services utilized in our workforce training programs. Current partners include the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), YouthBuild USA, Gulf Coast Community College, Catalyst Kitchens, Mississippi Center for Volunteer Services, AmeriCorps, Coast Chamber of Commerce, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast Business Council.


Funding for WTI comes from a wide variety of sources, including the federal government, corporations, foundations and individuals. To the extent possible, individual programs become social enterprises that create services and programs which can generate funding to support a portion of the program’s costs.
