Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, more than 8 million Ukrainians have fled their country. 250 are now remaking their lives in DuPage County. Victor Envelope and the DuPage Workforce Innovation Board/workNet DuPage have been supporting Ukrainians with job training and language resources – providing not just assistance but hope to individuals whose lives have been forever changed by the war. Read about it in the Daily Herald.

Get to know us.

The DuPage County Workforce Innovation Board is a business-led policy and decision- making body created under the federal law called the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  All Board members are appointed by Deborah A.
