Alabama's mobile career center will now be able to serve more people thanks to a grant from Governor Robert Bentley.

The grant, which was totaled at $87,230, will allow the center to set up at sites of natural disasters, mass employee layoffs, plant closings, job fairs, and other events.

"The mobile career center allows us to bring immediate on-site assistance to Alabamians who have been laid-off," Governor Robert Bentley said. "Alabama has a strong work force, and this center helps workers with training to find new employment."

This vehicle houses a computer lab with Internet access that can be used for job-search activities or as a mobile computer lab for training up to 12 people at a time.
