Building Rural Community Systems

Education to Employment Partnerships
A national capacity-building effort to support rural communities and regions by strengthening rural learning systems.

Supporting Rural Cross-Sector Partnerships

CivicLab is partnering with ten rural community and regional cross-sector partnerships around the country in developing education to employment partnerships. CivicLab will assist these rural collaboratives in developing and implementing plans to strengthen talent development ecosystems so that rural learners have paths to good jobs in their communities. In addition to direct financial support, partnerships will receive capacity-building support from CivicLab and specialized technical assistance from a network of experts.
