While the nation continues its post-recession rebound, there's no question that some people have been left behind. The long-term unemployed, or people out of work 27 weeks or longer, struggle to find their way in the new economy. They are disconnected from the workforce, out of the labor force and often out of hope. Reconnecting these men and women to workforce with solutions that make sense continues to be a focus of 3 Rivers WIB (3RWIB) and Pittsburgh Works.
3RWIB's Pittsburgh Works initiative was proud to be a part of the inaugural "Job Opportunities Awareness Day" Job and Resource Fair hosted by Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto, PA CareerLink® Pittsburgh/Allegheny County and PNC. More than 400 job seekers attended this first-of-its-kind event. Click to read more and for video!
3RWIB, through its key initiative Pittsburgh Works, is pleased to announce its Quick Train for Jobs New Destinations funding for 2015.
Through a Request for Proposal, 3RWIB seeks to fund effective business-driven training programs that prepare and place job seekers in in-demand jobs. We expect to fund 3-5 proposals ($25,000-$50,000 each). Click to learn more and for the Request for Proposals.
Questions received prior to Aug. 24 will be posted here.
The application period is closed. Check back for award announcements.
The PA Department of Labor and Industry has released both the statewide and regional DRAFT 2015 statewide High Priority Occupation (HPO) lists, which are used to determine the availability of funding for training programs in workforce development and education. An HPO is a job category that is in demand by employers, has higher skill needs, and is likely to provide family sustaining wages.
This year several occupations have been removed from "Three Rivers" regional HPO list and we need your assistance to ensure that our students and job seekers can attend the training programs needed to match employer demand throughout Allegheny County.
3 Rivers Workforce Investment Board is proud to be a part of this special report, led by Vibrant Pittsburgh and PittsburghTODAY, highlighting how the southwestern Pennsylvania workforce lacks diversity, posing a major challenge for the region.
