Applications Closed

In the Spring of 2018, in partnership with, and guided by, the Master Community Workforce Plan, we focused on applying innovation to the issue of workforce development -- to create efficiencies in a fragmented system, bridge the gap between underemployed and gainfully employed and connect underrepresented talent pools to available opportunities

The 2018 cohort worked hard, learned from one another and the become connected to the workforce community. They have strengthened their commitment and investment in addressing Austin's workforce crisis.
