Workforce Development 101 (For DYCD Providers Only)

Each year in New York City, workforce development plays a critical role in bridging the gap to employment and self-sufficiency for thousands of New Yorkers. The system of programs, organizations, funding streams, and stakeholders is as vast as the needs they seek to meet. Understanding and navigating this system can be a challenge for even the most seasoned practitioner.

This training is a unique opportunity for practitioners both inside and outside of the workforce development field to learn more about who is involved in the system, the types of programs available, how they operate, and where the funding comes from to support the various New York City workforce development programs. Furthermore, participants will gain insights into the basic features and functions of workforce programming that every practitioner should know.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the NYC workforce development system
  • Understand federal, state and local workforce programs and their funding sources
  • Know the key government, non-profit and for-profit agencies that deliver workforce development services in NYC
