SkillWorks Coaches Group Facilitator
SkillWorks currently partners with consultant Martha Oesch who facilitates and coordinates the SkillWorks Coaches Group. The SkillWorks Coaches Group formed in 2009 as a forum for practitioners to meet and define a set of issues, create and identify helpful tools and share best practices for working with under and unemployed jobseekers and hard to serve/underserved individuals. The professionally facilitated group meets monthly and includes coaches from all of SkillWorks' workforce partnerships and other interested stakeholders that offer coaching services. This peer learning forum also includes a twice annual joint meeting with the United Way financial literacy coaches, as well as academic advisors and careeer counselors from a number of other non-SkillWorks funded organizations.
If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about or joining the SkillWorks Coaches Group, please contact Marybeth Campbell, SkillWorks Executive Director, at 617-338-4377 or Marybeth.Campbell at tbf.org
Commonwealth Workforce Coalition
In previous years, SkillWorks has partnered with the Commonwealth Workforce Coalition (CWC) to provide SkillWorks partnerships with a range of capacity building services that helped to strengthen partnerships and program outcomes.
CWC’s goal is to foster peer learning wherever possible and to complement it with individualized technical assistance where needed. In recent years, SkillWorks has participated in and helped sponsor CWC's annual Sharing Skills ~ Building Connections Conference which provides agencies from across the Commonwealth with the opportunity to improve their workforce programs and practices; build connections across the range of provider systems; share skills and experiences; and equips attendees to better provide employment services to thousands of underemployed and unemployed people moving towards economic success.
