North Sarasota Workforce Initiative (NSWI)
The North Sarasota Workforce Initiative (NSWI) represents a strategic alliance between the community, City of Sarasota, Sarasota County, Sarasota County School Board, Sarasota Housing Authority, CareerSource Suncoast, and construction companies. The primary goal is to create jobs and training opportunities for local area residents. NSWI is now a model for local area hiring practices.
- CareerSource Suncoast provided dedicated staff to assist Newtown-North Sarasota area residents with job readiness skills which resulted in an increase of applicants and qualified hires. This initiative has become a model for other communities.
- A How To Guide is available for others who are seeking to achieve local hiring inclusiveness in local communities.
