Back in January 2010, several agencies in the community partnered to create the Casa Grande Workforce Development Partnership (CGWDP) to focus on the improvement of Casa Grande’s current and future workforce.
The group is working with local businesses to identify their workforce needs and develop a plan of action to address them. They are also working closely with the school districts to enhance their workforce related curriculum and increase the exposure that students have to workforce related assistance programs and training.CGWDP Agencies
In addition, the group is working on developing a program called “Profiles of Success”, a series of speaker presentations aimed at exposing students to positive role models who have achieved success in their vocation. Through such exposure, the group hopes to inspire students to pursue their dreams. The Workforce Partnership is also working on developing a master calendar of workforce training opportunities that are provided by CAC and the AZ Workforce Connection and available to our local businesses at low-to-no cost. Lastly, the group is in the early stages of also planning a Career Orientation event that will be held soon after school starts up again in the fall.
