Discover Westside Works
Westside Works was proudly founded in this historic Vine City neighborhood in 2014. Since then, Westside Works has been committed to providing education and training that leads to employment opportunities and job success for not just the Westside communities, but all of Atlanta’s residents. Westside Works provides job seekers with free services that they need to successfully get jobs that can turn into amazing careers. Westside Works offers training and certifications in construction, culinary arts and information technology—computer literacy, software and hardware. Westside Works also offers job seekers with immediate job opportunities and ways to earn as you learn.
More than 700 residents have graduated from the program, been placed in full-time living-wage jobs, and earned more than $20 million in wages for themselves and their families. Graduates have been placed at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, CD Moody Construction, Ford Fry Restaurants, Grady Hospital, YMCA, and Worldpay.
“Westside Works has shown me to not give up. There is a better path out of your situation, no matter what situation you might be in. There are avenues, as long as you are willing to take the steps to
get out of your predicament.”
– Alonzo Vega, Construction Ready Graduate
