WORKFORCE COMMITTEE

Workforce Committee

Committee Goal


To increase the employability of individuals by aligning education and workforce development programs that will create career pathways for the unemployed, underemployed, and underserved individuals ages 18-26 in the Greater Gainesville Area.

The committee meets monthly to collaborate and discover ways to address the barriers these individuals face in accessing education and training and finding meaningful work that offers a living wage.
