Growth continues in Pleasant Grove with Workforce Solutions Center
Dallas’ Pleasant Grove neighborhood is home to a brand-new Workforce Solutions center. Designed to deliver a system of services that complement economic development, the center is in the heart of Pleasant Grove at newly rebuilt Pleasant Grove Library on South Buckner Boulevard. Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas has a long-term lease for the facility, the eighth of its kind in Dallas County, and will operate daily on a Monday through Friday schedule from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The center will have over 25 full time staffers on hand to assist employers and job seekers.
Resources at the center will include a resource room for free computer access, seminars on resume preparation, interviewing skills, scholarships for training as well as childcare information and resources and educational programs to achieve English skills.
Mayor Mike Rawlings and Dallas District 5 Councilmember Rickey Callahan were on hand for the official ribbon-cutting of the center, an outgrowth of the Mayor’s GrowSouth campaign called Pleasant Grove Now.
