Definitions for "One-Stop Career Centers"
State networks of conveniently located centers that each provide employment, education, and training services all in one place. Some One-Stop Career Centers have all employment, training, and education partners and their programs on-site, while others have only selected partners and programs on-site. They are conveniently located within communities and provide a wealth of information and assistance for job seekers, education and training seekers, and employers.
As directed by Title I of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, each state is charged with creating and maintaining an integrated service delivery system, a “one-stop” system, that provides job-seekers and employers with information about and access to a wide range of employment, job training, and education services.
