Helping Communities Work invites national and global collaborations.

"Engaging Workforce Development: A Framework for Meeting CRA Obligations" is an excellent guide, which we use to break down the silos that challenge community development and sustainability. In the process, we facilitate collaborations among diverse stakeholders who may not ordinarily communicate yet have interrelated socioeconomic goals and objectives. Our work includes the creation of a holistic continuum of industry-recognized apprenticeships, early college high schools, sector-based workforce initiatives and the new collar jobs initiative.
