The purpose of the Job1 Initiative is to increase the amount of workplace-based, hands-on learning that young people receive so that they are better prepared to enter the job market as adults. This will ensure a strong local workforce for the future of our region’s economy.

Our Job1 Initiative is working to:

  1. Increase the number of businesses that HIRE a youth directly, HOST a student intern or subsidized youth employment program participant or HELP by donating funding to support subsidized youth placements.
  2. Build support for public youth employment and school-to-career programs among elected officials and the general public.
  3. Identify and advocate for additional resources for youth employment and school-to-career programs and policy changes where appropriate.
  4. Utilize employer placement referrals and private sector donations for youth employment and school-to-career programming.
  5. Share youth employment and school-to-career programming best practices among Job1 partners to help maximize resources and improve services/outcomes.
  6. Advise the CMWIB Youth Workforce Investment Council and the North Central Youth Employment Collaborative as to the best way to utilize public youth employment funding.
