Connecting Talent
To Opportunity

We invest in the residents of our 10 counties in order to disrupt multigenerational poverty and provide employers the talent they need to build thriving communities.


There are 9 designated workforce areas in Oregon. Each local workforce area is served by a Workforce Development Board. East Cascade Works is the local workforce development board that serves the 10 counties east of the Cascades including two sovereign tribal nations, Warm Springs & Klamath Tribes. ECWorks creates partnerships and offer services for businesses and job seekers in the East Cascade region.
