Future Ready Oregon at Work

In the Spring of 2022 Willamette Workforce Partnership (WWP) received a unique request for funding. Thanks to Future Ready Oregon, Prosperity 10,000 funding, WWP entered into an agreement to pay for flying lessons for a group of individuals who were ‘new neighbors’ in the Salem area. This group had been pilots in Afghanistan during the war and had flown alongside US troops. They knew how to fly, and they knew how to speak English. However, they did not have the required licensure to fly in the US. WWP was honored to fund this critical training so they could once again be pilots in their new country. This video highlights the individuals, and their story.

The Willamette Workforce Partnership team is deeply saddened by the plane crash in Polk County which claimed the lives of three Afghan Refugees who were participating in a pilot training program we supported. This program was designed to fund training for participants while supporting their aspirations and integration into their new community.

The tragic loss of these individuals, who had shown remarkable resilience and dedication, weighs heavily on our hearts. We extend our sincerest condolences to their friends, families, and the broader community affected by this devastating event.

We stand in solidarity with those mourning and encourage those wishing to offer support or contribute to funeral expenses to reach out to Salem For Refugees, the coordinating organization for this effort.

Willamette Workforce Partnership is dedicated to fostering a community that values diversity, resilience, and the pursuit of dreams, particularly in times of heartbreak.

In 2022, WWP invested $1.3 million in workforce investment funds for high-demand skills training benefiting underserved communities. Watch the video to see the results.
