Join Cara Plus for a virtual immersive institute on best practices and best failures from nearly 30 years in workforce development.

This institute is for organizations creating or enhancing workforce development programs to help people with employment barriers obtain, retain, and advance in quality jobs. Dive deep into Cara's service delivery model through workshops and one-on-one time with practitioners, and collaborate with other organizations on your own challenges and opportunities. Walk away with a fresh perspective and actionable steps to amplify your organization’s services, impact, and reach.
