Tri-County Workforce Alliance (TCWA)

TCWA is a non-profit organization covering Bolivar, Coahoma, and Quitman counties.  TWCA’s goal is to build the economy of these counties by helping to develop a competitive workforce, reduce unemployment, and promote systemic change within the educational system.  The program objectives are to:  l) enhance and maintain the highest levels of diverse skills among the area’s current workforce, 2) provide unemployed and underemployed adults with the necessary job and entrepreneurial skills, and 3) create a smoother transition for high school students seeking to enter the job market upon graduation.

Coahoma Community College is one of the key stakeholders in Tri-County’s efforts.  TWCA works closely with the Vo-Tech Department and the Industrial Training Center (along with all of the programs of the college) in its collaborative efforts.
