WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT SOLUTIONS LAB
Amplify your organization’s
reach and impact
An immersive lab on best practices and best failures from more than 30 years in workforce development
Our Workforce Development Solutions Lab is for organizations ready to help people with employment barriers obtain, retain, and advance in quality jobs. Dive deep into Cara’s service delivery model through workshops and one-on-one time with practitioners. Collaborate with other organizations to resolve your own challenges and tap into opportunities. Walk away with a fresh perspective and actionable steps to amplify your organization’s services, impact, and reach.
At this Lab, organizations will:
yourself in a competency-based approach to socio-emotional skills training
techniques to build and sustain participant interest, trust, and engagement
perspective on how to cultivate employment partnerships, as well as best-fit matchmaking practices for success in long-term job placement
knowledge, tools, and skills to help job seekers retain long-term employment
with peers to workshop ideas on best practices, best failures, pain points, and opportunities
What to expect
We are currently running our Workforce Development Solutions Lab virtually and in person. For our virtual cohorts, you’ll attend four half-day sessions over the course of two weeks. For in-person cohorts, you’ll join us for three days in Chicago at Cara Collective.
Who should attend
To maximize the experience and impact of our Workforce Development Solutions Lab, attending organizations must have a workforce development/job training component that is at least three years of age. We encourage executive leaders, senior leadership, or front-line managers to attend our Workforce Development Solutions Lab. While the series gives all leadership levels effective takeaways, we require at least one decision maker and at least one participant-facing staff member to maximize your experience (organizations may send two to four people).
