PLCC workforce development and library outreach

PLCC has been working with Prince George’s and Montgomery Public Library Systems to ensure Purple Line corridor residents are aware of the many free workforce resources and trainings both systems offer within the corridor. The result of that effort is Purple Line Corridor to Success, a series promoting a wide range of digital tools and digital skill-building resources for corridor residents to access and learn from. Register here and please share with your networks!

This partnership builds upon PLCC’s report, Long Term Workforce Development Strategies for the Purple Line Corridor: Ensuring a More Inclusive and Equitable Workforce Recovery in the Post-Pandemic Era. The report was the culmination of several months of research and collaborative discussion with representatives of county agencies, community colleges, nonprofit service providers, libraries, public school systems, and others. It charts a path forward to leverage the Purple Line investment to generate economic opportunity for more corridor residents, especially Black, Latinx, and immigrant residents, and those with lower incomes to attain higher-skill and higher wage jobs, thereby increasing employers’ competitiveness in the corridor.
