Workforce Development Exchange Program

Workforce Services Information Notice

Issued: February 24, 2021

The James Irvine Foundation has announced a no cost opportunity to provide four Local Workforce Development Boards (Local Board) with training and coaching in order to create customer-focused services to meet the needs of people affected by the massive economic disruption due to COVID-19.

Focused on user-centered design, the Workforce Development Exchange 3-month training program will be provided online in phases, and Local Boards will learn in the context of a project they choose. Participating Local Boards will receive design toolkits and materials, and will participate in an interactive online platform to view and complete the training. As this is an overall investment of approximately 45-50 hours per staff person, Local Boards should only apply if their team can make all the dates and have time allotted for additional work outside the sessions.

Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, March 16, 2021.

To learn more about this opportunity, application process, and important dates, refer to the Workforce Development Exchange announcement (PDF).
