Workforce Development Training Programs

The Center’s emphasis on workforce development began with the inauguration of Nixon and has continued throughout the life of the Center.  Today, CSPCD operates several workforce development programs geared to adults, and include:

  • Health Careers Opportunity Program - Funded in 2014, this is a three-year training project funded by the U.S. DHHS/HRSA to train economically and educationally disadvantaged adults as Community Health Workers.
  • New Choices Career Development (NCCD) Program (funded by PA Women Work) which is for dislocated workers and which has been around for decades
