Capacity Building

One of SkillWorks’ key strategies is to build capacity among community-based organizations and workforce partnerships to ensure that they can meet the human resource needs of employers and low and moderate income individuals.

SkillWorks’ capacity building component is twofold:

  1. Using multiple methods, SkillWorks provides technical assistance to funded workforce partnerships, focusing on partnership management and governance, performance management, working with employers, measuring impact, systems change strategies, and other crucial areas that help partnerships meet their stated goals and objectives.
  1. SkillWorks also seeks to build the capacity of workforce partnerships and workforce system providers to implement and deliver dual-customer workforce services. To this end, SkillWorks will document and disseminate learnings from the initiative, host general trainings and workshop sessions, and create learning networks that include not only our workforce partnerships but also other organizations and grantees.

In Phase II, SkillWorks worked with the Commonwealth Workforce Coalition to deliver and coordinate capacity building services.
