The Albany Area Chamber of Commerce began this initiative by convening the Workforce Development Taskforce. During the process of defining the needs of local business and industry, the committee developed a plan to combine their efforts with local educators to provide more comprehensive training options for local students. Also as a result of their efforts, Pipeline was created to help students, employers and educators discover a path that puts young people on the most direct line from school to a rewarding job with a bright future. There are all kinds of local jobs available in CTE (manufacturing and health care) fields. Many of these opportunities only ask for a High School diploma or a Certificate/Associate’s Degree from Linn-Benton Community College. Our primary goal at Pipeline is to introduce students to these CTE career opportunities in our community.
