The Workforce on Wheels (WOW) team is a cutting-edge mobile service operation developed by the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services (DOES) to address the needs of District's youth and residents in the communities where they live. Commissioned to serve constituents in underserved communities, the WOW team and mobile unit allows DOES to bring American Job Center (AJC) resources and services to neighborhoods where access is often limited. WOW features workforce programming and employer services, providing opportunities for District residents to prepare for employment opportunities and businesses to connect with qualified applicants. The WOW team is comprised of DOES Community Ambassadors, deployed to engage and educate partners and stakeholders in areas of workforce development while providing residents with employability tools to guide them on a pathway to the middle class.
