Wilmington

IS WORKING

The Wilmington Is Working Ecosystem explores hiring policies and processes that impede employment and wealth-building for the City’s Black and Brown residents, with a focus on justice-involved individuals. We work to identify barriers to securing gainful employment, while addressing capacity building, resource availability and access to wraparound services and supports. Through this ecosystem we partner with community organizations, government agencies and private training and employer partners to provide criminal reentry services, job readiness training, employment opportunities, and digital literacy assessments that impact long term solutions for marginalized residents of Wilmington.

In 2021, we were accepted as members of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions network, – one of only 34 cohorts nationwide- where we work to learn best practices and participate in special initiatives aligned with our workforce programs and goals.
