Project Compass Workforce Recovery Workshop
Library staff are first-responders to job seekers and the unemployed. Yet during these tough time increased demands often outstrip our time to build resources and services. The IMLS-funded Project Compass will share real-world success stories and a foundation of skills to take the guess-work out of building programs and services for workforce recovery. Participants will learn from successful programs - what made them work and what challenges they faced.
