Workforce Development

Benton County has rich workforce development opportunities right at our fingertips. Purdue University and Ivy Tech Community College are both nearby (under a 30 minute drive for much of our county) in the greater Lafayette area. We are also thankful for our local Purdue Extension office that provides education and resources in agricultural and natural resources, health and human sciences, community development, and 4-H youth development.
