What is The Work Station?
The Work Station houses the OhioMeansJobs center for Athens County and also provides a home for several community partners. We offer FREE employment training and support services for businesses, job seekers and the community.
Hours of operation:
Monday-Friday: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The Work Station is a member of Ohio's Area 14 OhioMeansJobs system, along with Meigs and Perry counties.
As a local workforce investment area, these three county offices form a comprehensive workforce development system that integrates Ohio's economic development, workforce development, and education and training systems into a cohesive and effective system.

Free GED practice tests
Since the switch earlier this year to a computerized version of the GED test, many adult learners have found success in obtaining their GED. Students can take a free computerized practice version before attempting the real thing. Contact The Work Station to begin the process.
We also offer free classes for anyone who wishes to improve their basic academic skills and/or prepare to take the GED.
Through the ABLE (Adult Basic and Literacy Education) Program, students study reading, math and language arts. There are also lessons in science, social studies, life skills, employability skills and basic computer skills.
We offer ABLE classes at The Work Station and at Tri-County Career Center. Instruction is designed to go at a comfortable pace to best meet the needs of our students. We want our students to succeed, and we will do as much as possible to help you.
