IowaWORKS Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary of the New Iowan Center with an Open House
SIOUX CITY – IowaWORKS is hosting an open house to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the New Iowan Center and array of services provided to Iowans.
The New Iowan Center Program in Sioux City started in November of 2000. To celebrate this occasion, the Center is hosting a Naturalization Ceremony followed by an open house on Friday, November 5, 2010. The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and will take about an hour followed by light refreshments.
New Iowan Centers were established to offer workforce development services to persons who have recently moved to Iowa and are seeking employment. The centers are designed to support workers, businesses, and communities with information, community service referrals, job placement, translations, language training, and resettlement assistance, as well as technical and legal assistance concerning forms and documentation. Through public-private partnerships, the New Iowan Centers provide one-stop workforce services for new Iowans.
