Workforce Development Focus Group

The first resident focus group was held Wednesday, March 9th at Gallaudet University and included a discussion of workforce development issues. The focus group, which had thirteen participants, included discussions on residents’ current employment status, barriers to employment, job training programs, and other resources available to help residents train for and obtain employment or to help them through unemployment. Themes arose out of the discussion, including the obstacles faced by those with a criminal record, the experience of older adults trying to find new employment, requirements for recognized certification regardless of on-the-job training experience, and the ineffectiveness of existing training programs and resources.

Detailed notes from the Workforce Development Focus Group are available here.
