The IWA, a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit, is one of the northeast region’s leading advanced manufacturing workforce-development training organizations. We provide essential programming for incumbent and in-transition workers, and college and non-college bound students; from energy to aerospace, pharmaceuticals to building trades. The IWA partners with industry, government, and educational institutions to fill the employment pipeline for in-demand engineers, and installation and technical service workers, with a focus on hard-to-fill positions, and on low-income, high needs communities.
The IWA also works with national research and training institutions to ensure our programs consistently meet and exceed local and national skills requirements.
Let’s break the student ” I can’t ” belief barrier. We have an emphasis on underserved communities. Everyone has the potential to succeed through the Institute for Workforce Advancement.

Students of color, who represent a combined 26% of the U.S. population (21 years or older), account for only 15% of STEM college degree holders and 11% of the STEM workforce.
