The Workforce Potential Project (WPP) is a joint effort of the Austin Area Research Organization (AARO) and the Ray Marshall Center. WPP is designed to equip area residents at least 25 years of age with a sub-baccalaureate degree or industry-recognized credential that qualifies them for demand occupations paying $18 per hour or more in growth industry sectors. The investment in local human capital fosters regional economic development, while improving employment and earnings of current residents.
