The Leake County Development Association is excited to bring the ACT Work Ready Community Program to Leake County. 

Most people have heard of the ACT college entrance examination.  That exam is geared to college bound students. 

Most people don't know that ACT has an exam geared to career bound students and people already in the workforce.  Successful completion of the ACT WorkKeys assessment results in a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). 

The ACT Work Ready Community Program is a coordinated effort to ensure our employers know about the advantages of hiring National Career Readness Certificate (NCRC) holders, and it is a methodical process to get as many of our residents to take the ACT WorkKeys assessment so that they can document their skill sets to employers.  

Choose one of the two paths below to learn more about how you will benefit from being part of the ACT Work Ready Community Program.
