Washington has one of the fastest growing state economies with more STEM and health care jobs than we can fill. WSOS aims to connect our state’s leading industries with top Washington talent by reducing barriers to education and training and facilitating entry into high-demand careers for Washington students. Working collaboratively with the state and industry partners, we launch low-and middle-income students into careers, maximizing the return on investment for the state and ensuring our state’s robust economy can continue to thrive.
