jobs action team
The role of the Jobs Action Team is to help fill jobs AND reduce poverty by facilitating win-win relationships between:
Job Seekers - the 9,000+ under/unemployed adults living in poverty in Lancaster County
Preparers - who support job readiness and training
Employers - the 7,000+ family-sustaining jobs employers are striving to fill
We emphasize using success stories of local businesses, educators, community organizations, and individuals as inspirational examples.
Much of the work of this Action Team is carried out through events and initiatives by ASSETS, the Lancaster Chamber, and the Lancaster County Community Foundation, with an emphasis on using successful practices of local businesses as examples. This Action Team provides guidance, support, and speakers/facilitators from businesses that are making a difference.
