Application Available for Future of AJC’s Cohort Challenge (Deadline 1/31)
Changes in customers’ needs and advances in technology have significantly altered how customers access American Job Center (AJC) employment services. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) made significant changes to the AJC System and presents states and local areas with an opportunity to employ innovative, flexible solutions to better connect workers and employers with services designed to meet their unique needs.
These evolutions allow for greater flexibility and present the public workforce system with an opportunity to connect with more workers and employers, helping communities grow and prosper.
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is seeking volunteer state and local teams to join the “Future of AJCs” cohort to participate in a twelve-week innovative curriculum designed to help teams re-engineer services based on the needs of their worker and employer customers. The cohort will participate with peers across the nation as they ignite collective, creative brainstorming, in search of the most innovative solutions. They will examine the system, re-think current approaches, and partner with private industry for inspiration.
If you are interested in joining this cohort, which will consist of a diverse and dynamic group of teams from around the country that will work together to imagine and design the blue prints for the AJC’s of the future, organize your team of partners and apply today.Please click here for an overview of the cohort and here for the application.
