The one-stop resource center for federal, state, and local governments to address their most pressing workforce challenges with workers Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs).
Opportunity@Work is excited to be working with experts to collectively assemble resources, support, and know-how to drive skills-based practices across the public sector.
If you’re part of an organization that wants to get involved or a government leader who wants to join the movement, sign up to learn more. You’ll learn about ways to collaborate, get access to news, resources, and exclusive programming, and be notified when the Hub officially launches in 2024.
Making the shift to skills requires insights and data about STARs, regional landscapes and narratives, participation in a learning network, and long-term best practice resources and assistance.
Here’s a snapshot of the types of support the Hub will provide with partners, along with a few links to get you started.
