Build Your Workforce

San Bernardino County faces a challenge caused by increasing demands for an educated and qualified workforce and the need to bring additional qualified workers to the developing technology and manufacturing industries in the Inland Empire. As experienced workers move toward retirement, and the county is revitalized through increasing employment in health care, aviation, transportation and logistics and advanced manufacturing, it is imperative that a local workforce is educated, trained and ready to be hired by local employers.

Research shows real advantages to training and retaining local students for local communities, including a higher retention rate that allows for lower training costs in the workplace. The Alliance for Education partners with local workforce agencies, government, business and labor organizations to support development of a qualified and educated workforce to achieve a vibrant economy and sustainable communities.
