The Employability Network (EN) consists of members from several community agencies and institutions representing a cross-section of social, economic, educational and training sectors in the SD&G area. The EN’s goal is to focus on bridging the gap to obtaining gainful and sustainable employment for the unemployed or working poor individuals and families in the community and surrounding areas.
The Employability Network has developed a service-to-services referral form to encourage inter-agency communication and better coordination between local employment services. The Service to Service Referral From can be found here.
Since 2013, one of the projects that the Employability Network has been working on is to deliver a series of free training opportunities for front-line staff.
