Wednesday, February 24, 2021 4:00 PM ~ 5:00 PM ET

This webinar will describe how the America's Promise grantee partnerships responded to the changing service delivery environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic. During the presentation, members of the study team will describe steps grantee partnerships took to provide services virtually, including changes to intake, case management, and placement services.

 


Description

In addition, the study team will describe the unique circumstances of the primary sectors targeted by the grantee partnerships (advanced manufacturing, IT, and healthcare sectors) and promising practices for adapting training and service offerings to meet the changing needs of participants and employer partners. The team will also discuss lessons from the grantee partnerships that could inform future virtual offerings and provision of employment and training service during recessionary periods.
