Dallas Area Workforce Collaborative
How We Got Started
Responding to a request from the City of Dallas and a number of social services organizations in the Southern Sector, the Dallas Area Workforce Collaborative was formed, with Community Council serving as a backbone organization.
Why We Got Started
With a growing skills gap in North Texas and Dallas County, the area is faced with an overwhelming number of unemployed and underemployed residents, while at the same time, a pervasive need for middle-skill workers exists.
How We Will Address The Need
The Collaborative aims to establish an entry path for low-skilled, unemployed and/or underemployed workers into high-demand industries including: Information Technology (IT), Advanced Manufacturing, Logistics/Warehouse Distribution, Construction, Transportation and Basic Peace Officer Training.
