Outstationing at MassHire Career Centers

Each of the state's 16 local workforce areas have one or more (AE) Adult Education agencies providing outstationing services. Outstationing staff serve as liaisons between the AE system and the MassHire Career Center system to provide two-way referrals. AE programs receiving outstationing funds are required to develop a process agreed upon by local area AE programs to facilitate this system.
