Iredell Ready is an initiative designed to help students and residents, K-12 through retirement, identify opportunities to pursue individual career pathways and employment with industry in Iredell County. Iredell Ready aims to strengthen our partnerships with industry by working to support their recruitment, retention, and pipeline development efforts to build a skilled workforce.

Iredell Ready was established in March 2022, in partnership with industry, academia, government, and the nonprofit community to identify, align, and enhance strategic priorities across the workforce development pipeline from early childhood education to retirement. Founding partners of the initiative include:

The initiative is currently working to build a website that supports students, parents, educators, residents, and businesses on the various programs and resources to support their workforce development needs.  To learn more about our workforce development efforts with Iredell Ready,, please contact
