Leaders from charitable organizations from throughout the Eastern Jackson County area recently learned about opportunities for workforce development and degree completion at a Community Summit, hosted by the University of Central Missouri Lee’s Summit.
The event, held Feb. 5 at the university’s Missouri Innovation Campus, provided information about UCM resources available to help the organizations’ clients upgrade their workforce skills for future employment, finish college degrees and earn in-demand industry certifications.
Around a dozen representatives attended the event including leaders from civic, charitable and community-service organizations. The event was facilitated by Joe Mullins, a consultant UCM Workforce and Professional Development.
“We are building programs to work with community organizations that have clients with workforce and funding needs, so that more training and employment opportunities are made available to them,” Mullins said.
The University of Central Missouri offers a variety of degree programs as well as workforce development and career certification opportunities.
