Workforce Development Initiative 

In the past, workforce development consisted of training, or retraining workers for available jobs in the market. Today, post pandemic, workforce development looks a little different. While training workers is a significant aspect of workforce development, there’s much more. Helping those who are soon to enter the job market understand the options available to them is another aspect. Making connections between available workers and the business community is another. Creating internships, job shadowing, and exposure to high tech jobs, the medical field and the trades is yet another. Allowing educators to tour local and regional job sites, tech facilities, and other places of employment will help them guide students looking to enter the workforce.

The Gilroy Chamber of Commerce is focusing on a Workforce Development Initiative where we will partner with various agencies and organizations such as the City of Gilroy, Gilroy Unified School District, Gavilan College, the business community, and others, so that we create pathways for students and workers who want to advance their careers and help connect workers to industry.
