The Boston Foundation recently published four Catapult Papers, authored by Jerry Rubin, CEO of JVS Boston. The Catapult Papers are a series of essays on the future of workforce development and the kinds of workforce organizations that need to be created to expand opportunity for lower-income individuals and create competitive advantages for businesses in need of workers. These “Next Gen Workforce Organizations” will not only require different structures, they will require accompanying investment by philanthropy and government that can make Next Gen workforce development a reality.
Based on the innovative and field-proven practices of JVS Boston’s own transition experience and produced as a partnership between JVS Boston, SkillWorks and the Boston Foundation, these four papers tackle the key features organizations will need to embrace to succeed in the changing economy.
