Brianna Robinson, Opportunity Junction’s Vice President of Programs, has been selected to participate in the inaugural National Skills Coalition (NSC) California Advocacy and Policy Academy (CAPA) cohort.
CAPA is the first academy in the state focused on providing a platform for community-based organizational leaders to engage in state-level workforce development policy discussions.
Brianna joins leaders from 19 other leading workforce organizations from across California. Cohort meetings take place in Sacramento, beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, February 25) and continuing through November.
Members of CAPA will participate in a series of capacity-building workshops and have the opportunity to share their expertise with state peers, apply lessons learned throughout the academy, and participate in state capitol visits to inform policy decisions as it relates to skills training and education.
