California Workforce Innovation Network (CalWIN)
For the past year, CalSAC has participated in, and
more recently, coordinated the California Workforce
Innovation Network (CalWIN).
CalWIN includes the following organizations:
All of these organizations are addressing the workforce
development needs of the afterschool workforce in different
ways, and as CalWIN members, they are intentionally
connecting their work to the rest of CalWIN.
CalWIN has developed five basic premises for its work including:
- Part-time afterschool employment can be a great job for
certain people at certain times in their life.
It can be an opportunity to Earn, Learn, and Inspire.
Afterschool jobs can and should be made more attractive
leading to better retention of workers.
Recruiting and retaining qualified, diverse staff is
critical to program quality.
Afterschool should actively seek partners to help improve
the field, particularly partners in higher education
and workforce development programs.
These partnerships can range from simple cooperation
to complex collaborations.
Certain demographic and workforce trends will help
encourage these partnerships including growth in afterschool
field and the retirement of baby boomers from wide
variety of professions.
