South West Madison Employment Center officially open

The South West Madison Employment Center officially opened Wednesday.

The center is located on McKenna Boulevard at the former Griff’s Restaurant, which had been vacant.

The Urbana League of Greater Madison will operate the center, providing on-site job training and skills development, plus neighborhood access to drop-in resume and job search support.

The Urban League has a new partnership with Exact Sciences, training people for laboratory technician and customer care positions.

Dane County has made an economic support specialist available at the new center to help people find child care and get access to health care services.
