Workforce Development

The Antelope Valley is home to a diverse and ever-changing workforce. In order to help businesses succeed in this competitive environment, it’s important that we have the right employees with the right skills. Unfortunately, there are gaps in the workforce development ecosystem in the Antelope Valley. At Antelope Valley Partners for Health, we know that education is the key to success. That’s why we offer job training, skill building, and other workforce development programs to help our job seekers thrive. Our program is tailored to meet each individual’s needs. Whether you’re looking for help with finding a job or preparing for an interview, there are programs out there that can help you succeed. We provide an overview of how our workforce system works today and highlight some opportunities for improvement by community members like you!

Antelope Valley is home to a diverse and ever-changing workforce.

You might be surprised to learn that Antelope Valley is home to a diverse and ever-changing workforce. In fact, the region’s economic strength and diversity are great assets for many businesses looking to establish themselves here.


Jobseekers are looking and needed supporting

Jobseekers can find out what programs are available to them, see what is available in the area, and find out how to apply for the program. They can talk to someone about the program or get help from an expert.

There are many opportunities to help improve the workforce development system in Antelope Valley

There are many ways to help improve the workforce development system in Antelope Valley. The first step is understanding that it’s not just about job training, or education and training, or workforce planning. It’s all of those things and more. 

The second step is figuring out who the stakeholders are and how they can help make these improvements happen. Those stakeholders include: government agencies; faith-based organizations; businesses; educational institutions; social service providers; unions/employee associations; and individual citizens who want to improve their own lives by gaining skills that will allow them to move up in their careers or increase their earning potentials by accessing better job opportunities via career pathways programs offered through county based WorkSource Centers (WSC) networked with several California One-Stop Career Centers (COCCs).

 

What makes this particularly challenging is that each stakeholder group has different objectives for improving workforce development in their communities—and often those objectives conflict with each other! For example: some businesses think offering job training courses will take too long because employees might leave if they’re gone from work too long learning new skills required on the new jobs being created today (and tomorrow…and next year). Other stakeholders believe there should be more focus on helping people find jobs rather than providing them with education opportunities at community colleges where they would have access only if they had transportation costs covered by grants received through federal funding sources such as Pell Grants™ awarded annually through U.S Department Of Education – Office Of Federal Student Aid® programs–or even private loans which could potentially lead them into bankruptcy proceedings down the road should something happen between now until graduation day when those loans come due!

The Antelope Valley is a unique place, with a unique set of needs. As the region continues to grow and expand, we must ensure that it has the skilled workers it needs to thrive. The workforce development ecosystem in this area can be improved by creating more resources for jobseekers, increasing collaboration between local community organizations and institutions that serve people with disabilities, and making sure that every person who wants a job has one available to them. We hope these suggestions will help spark new ideas about how best serve the Antelope Valley community!

Maternal and Child Health

Maternal and child health is a priority for AVPH and the Antelope Valley community. The Antelope Valley has some of the highest rates of infant mortality, low birth weight babies, preterm births, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections in the United States. In fact, these rates are higher than other parts of Los Angeles County! While many factors contribute to this trend (including income level), there are plenty of resources available to help families cultivate an environment that supports healthy pregnancies and children from their first days through adulthood.
