With support from The Pinkerton Foundation, we are pleased to announce the sixth cohort of the Job Developers Learning Group(JDLG). The JDLG is a rigorous cohort-based training program designed to equip and empower job developers with skills that best meet the needs of employer partners and program participants. Represented in this cohort are 36 frontline workforce development practitioners from 28 organizations that provide direct service to youth and adult jobseekers across NYC’s five boroughs. This cohort joins 190 practitioners who are successfully applying lessons learned from this program to their work in the field.
The Workforce Field Building Hub (The Hub) at Workforce Professionals Training Institute’s (WPTI) 2020 Survey of NYC Frontline Workforce Professionals aims to gain a deeper understanding of the workers directly serving clients across New York City’s workforce development system.
