Penobscot County Transition Team


The Penobscot County Transition Team is a partnership of local, state, and federal organizations who are committed to assisting workers facing unemployment due to downsizing and closures. The Team has a broad membership base with representation from Penquis, the TriCounty CareerCenter, the TriCounty Workforce Investment Board, Eastern Maine Development Corporation, Penobscot Community Health Care, and the offices of US Senator Susan Collins, and US Senator Angus King.  The Team was founded in response to several major layoffs in the region in 2004.  Our mission is to help laid-off workers secure new jobs, obtain additional education & training, and take advantage of the many community resources available to them.
