Despite the economic growth that Marin is experiencing, many of the job opportunities available are minimum wage service sector jobs that do not provide sufficient income or benefits to support the cost of living in Marin.
With the Bay Area experiencing robust economic recovery rates, there is the opportunity to develop strategic partnerships between educators and employers, which can connect low-income people with skills and training, and employers with skilled workers. We will fund training and skill-building programs that create these opportunities for wage progression for low-income adults and disconnected youth. We will also conduct research to identify the most promising sectors for job growth in and around Marin, and define potential roles MCF can take to contribute to sector-level strategies.
This initiative uses an invitation-only application process. The next proposals will be invited 12 June, 2017.
