Providing Residents With Skills to Secure High-Quality Jobs

Stockton ranks 94th out of 100 cities when it comes to providing its labor force with the skills they need to perform the jobs that are available. To help provide more opportunities to those who need them the most, the city is focusing its efforts on targeting the neighborhoods that are struggling most with high crime, few job opportunities, and failing schools.

FUSE Fellow Ann Rogan will design a program that provides essential skills to residents so they can secure the high-quality, well-paying jobs they need to improve their lives. By forming innovative partnerships between the public and private sectors and focusing on the needs of the communities most in need of assistance, Ann will help bring greater equity and opportunity to Stockton and help the city’s most vulnerable citizens find success in the workforce.
