We will open pathways to better paying jobs.
Workforce Development means increasing resources to help individuals raise their income and create sustainable careers. It means connecting business and education to improve work-based learning opportunities, apprenticeship and mentoring. It also means working with Valley business associations, educational institutions, and other partners to develop long-term strategies to increase the number of workers with high-paying, in-demand jobs.
We will not only provide resources to help individuals prepare to earn a living wage, but to increase the number or people in our community who achieve higher paying wages. This work will rely on the experience and know-how of our partners. The below Coalition members focus on our Mighty workforce development goals and develop strategies to create impact. When informed by the Coalition and their Action Teams, we change course as needed to stay focused on the right programs and solutions to reach our bold goals for Maricopa County.
