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!
