Workforce Development

Committee Accomplishments

The Shelby County Nonprofit Committee brought together nonprofits across varied sectors to share concerns and draw attention to issues that are barriers to residents’ success. We collectively identified major issues per sector and identified ways to address a part of a systemic problem. This is a different approach. Our focus has been on narrowing a focus, coming up with a project that chips away at a big problem, that’s achievable in a year. Previous projects in this sector include:

  • Problem: Awareness of Workforce Services is lacking in the community despite a number of organizations providing services. 
  • Strategy: The Workforce Development Committee has developed a public facing online screening tool to better connect residents in need of workforce solutions with the many services available that best fit their needs.
