Reforming Workforce Development in the District of Columbia

April 8, 2013

A new paper sponsored by The Community Foundation’s Greater Washington Workforce Development Collaborative lays out recommendations to help improve publicly-funded workforce services in the District of Columbia. This paper is the latest in a series of highly influential workforce development briefs created by the DC Fiscal Policy Institute and DC Appleseed with support from the Collaborative. From DCFPI’s blog:

There is little doubt that the District’s leaders, especially Mayor Gray, are serious about helping residents get jobs, with an array of new initiatives that include a workforce intermediary and an independent community college.  Yet the District’s largest workforce service – its network of “one-stop career centers” – is not living up to its potential.  In a policy brief issued today, we call on the District to strengthen these one-stop centers as the next step in reforming workforce development.
