Description

Developing a Workforce Development Program for Your Organization

March 26th from 10am to 4pm

Lunch included

Description:

Workforce Development is a vital component of community economic development. Unemployment rate is at an all-time low (3.9%), however 30.1% of South Carolina residents have low-wage jobs, earning less than the poverty threshold for a family of four ($24,300). It can be challenging to start a program and know how to effectively measure its impact. Homes of Hope, Foothill Family Resources, and SHARE, leaders in workforce development training, will breakdown their programs and give organizations the tools and resources to start their own workforce development program.

Attendees will get a personal tour Homes of Hope's Workforce Development Training Center. Additionally, a panel of participants will share their personal stories and answer questions about their experience participating in a workforce development program.

Quotes from Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond’s survey identifying current and emerging issues.

“Need for middle skilled workers is critical in our community. We do not have the skilled workforce, yet we continue to recruit new businesses.” Non-profit organization in South Carolina

“We need technical skills in our workforce, work ethic, and for them to be able to get to work.” Small business Development Center in South Carolina

“One in 5 young children in SC is raised under the federal poverty line; the communities we serve face this dynamic as a microcosm of our state. Low or underemployed workers and disconnected youth is a troubling data point for us. As a post-textile, rural community, we face the ghost of generational reliance on the “mill” as one aspect of the community’ past. This dependence on one industry, combined with low educational attainment and experience, has been a factor in stymieing economic growth.” Philanthropic Organization in South Carolina
