Workforce Development Working Group

We use our monthly workforce development Working Group meetings to discuss issues related to creating enhanced employment and training opportunities for disadvantaged job seekers and working poor families. The group identifies opportunities to reform public policies and improve local workforce development programs. Each month we have a varied agenda and frequently invite workforce providers and public policy advocates to present. Whether you are interested in opportunities to engage in advocacy, or would like to learn more about effective employment and training programs, the Working Group can serve as a useful resource.

Annually, more than 100 community-based advocates and providers participate in this working group. You can attend the meeting as a CJC member or other community stakeholder committed to ensuring access to employment and career advancement opportunities for people in poverty.
