WE STRENGTHEN THE JOB TRAINING PROGRAMS THAT SERVE OUR RESIDENTS
Ensuring job training for 100% of county residents. The 100% Community job training action team identifies challenges, researches solutions and supports organizations in strengthening job training in its many forms to youth and adults. The long-term goal is creating a countywide system of job training with collaboration and coordination with all city government, county government and non-governmental organizations within the county’s borders.
The 100% Community job training action team collects and analyzes data then identifies gaps in current job training programs, including vocational education and higher education. The 100% Community survey data, including informational interviews with residents of all communities within the county’s borders, reveal which populations and communities lack easy access to job training. The survey also reveals why job trainnig programs may be difficult to access. Difficulties may include a lack of awareness of programs, lack of transport to engage with training, lack of internet access to engage online with coursework and training,, lack of availability of training.
The 100% Community job training action team focuses on identifying which job training programs need capacity-building in order to meet the need. The team identifies partnerships to improve services. This can be done through a process of continuous quality improvement (the data-driven “assess-plan-act-evaluate” process).

The 100% Community job training action team focuses on the long-term goal of creating a county-city “Department of Jobs” to focus on supporting all job training programs. This includes surveying residents on their access to mentors, their need for job training and why they might be difficult to access. This proposed department could also support ongoing research in job training programs across the county.
To identify gaps in county services, strengthen service organizations, and create a networked countywide system of services, timely support and empowerment. Identifying solutions that meet the needs of those county residents with and without access to the web.
Job readiness aligns with the new job workforce and market in a radically changed world, while online instruction and video conferencing empowers learners of all ages.
The 100% Community initiative action team on job training is faced with a new reality, a radically changed (and changing) job market. The goal of this team is to partner with vocational ed and higher education to align all instruction to current and future job markets. The team will also research how to create a system of subsidized training and workforce development for those who have lost jobs yet eagerly seek new employment. The goal is to have all work-seeking adults employed or in training to be employed. This will require unprecedented collaboration between the state workforce development agencies, higher education, school districts, and county and city governments.
