Workforce Solutions Collaborative
of Metro Hartford

About Us

WHO WE ARE:
We are a funders’ collaborative, bringing together a national, regional, and local investors to pool resources around a shared strategic vision for workforce development.

WHAT WE DO:
We co-invest in and champion industry partnerships that help create a vibrant workforce of skilled candidates that meet employers’ needs, and we promote equity and access to quality job opportunities by reducing the barriers to education and training.

We serve employers and residents of central Connecticut in the Greater Hartford area, with a focus on:

  • Job seekers whose educational level may not meet the requirements of the job market, women seeking to work in non-traditional careers, young adults, people of color, and others who face challenges such as a past record of incarceration.
  • Employers located in Hartford and Enfield Labor Markets (north/central CT region) and/or regularly hire people who live in this region.

OUR INVESTORS for 2022:
American Savings Foundation, Bank of America, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, JPMorgan Chase, Liberty Bank Foundation, Middlesex United Way, National Fund for Workforce Solutions, Prudential Foundation, State of Connecticut Department of Labor, United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut, and United Way Worldwide/Deloitte, LLP.

United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut serves as the fiscal agent and managing partner for the collaborative.
