The Challenge

During every AB86 collaborative meeting that our consortium has had, the topic of a "one-stop" website for our region is brought up. The website would help to simplify finding resources for every educator, student, counselor, parent or or anyone that needs to find a job or explore new career options.

The Solution

Three meetings have been held with the State Center Adult Education Consortium staff, a representative from Fresno Metro Ministries, and the local Workforce Connection. Each person at these meetings were asked to invite various members from our region for an upcoming Community Resource Outreach Website Network Design "Kick-Off" Session on February 4, 2015.


At this point, the collaboration that has taken place because of the AB86 funding has brought a multitude of people together that may not have ever met. Because we came together, we can all address the needs of our community as one entity and learn from each other. More information will be provided as we continue to build our collaborative website.

The Data

We anticipate 30 people to attend the Community Resource Outreach Website Network Design Session and will move forward from there.
