Local Workforce Impact on a National Scale

The Skills Model empowers our affiliate sites across the country in creating ways to connect jobs to people and people to jobs that otherwise would not exist. By starting with the job first, our Skills Model promotes equitable hiring practices, closes the access gap, and reduces barriers to unemployment.
