Our job preparation work advances two objectives: Northeast Ohio residents can get, keep and advance in jobs; and our talent pool is a comparative advantage for companies who stay, expand in, or are attracted to the region.
To prepare our residents for current and future jobs, we:
- Support efforts to strengthen the service delivery ecosystem for adult workforce;
- Foster industry-focused talent initiatives; and
- Provide philanthropic “R&D” to test new workforce system practices.
