Helping People to Move Into Good Jobs Through a Network of Partners

The Rework America Alliance is partnering with organizations nationwide to help workers from low-wage roles move into good jobs.

At a regional level, the Alliance is working with national organizations and local partners that have the local knowledge, relationships and networks in the communities they serve to get support to where it is most needed. This includes regional affiliates of the development of core partnerships with Goodwill, National Urban League, RuralLISC and UnidosUS at a national level, as well as with their regional affiliates in key locations – and with other local non-profits and workforce initiatives.

A community focus to help job seekers

The Alliance is helping to establish community-wide support for job seekers by:

  • Sharing actionable job market insights on good jobs, in-demand locally and relevant to those who have been displaced during the pandemic.
  • Providing resources to worker-serving organizations so their career coaches and counselors can better support job seekers and help them identify good jobs and effective training aligned to those jobs.
  • Working with employers to change the way they source and hire worker so they open opportunities to more job seekers and access a more diverse talent pool.
  • Supporting the development of community-wide networks dedicated to connecting job seekers to good jobs with opportunity for advancement and economic mobility.

The initial regions and organizations leading efforts locally are:

Supporting state workforce leaders

At a state level, the Alliance is supporting state workforce leaders through the Rework America State Network , a non-partisan collaboration of 30 governors and the mayor of the District of Columbia, to transform the labor market at a scale and pace not possible through individual state actions.
