To set our students up for success, we need to teach them relevant skills for in-demand fields. To teach them those skills, we need to understand the needs of the workforce.
Each year, we invest time and resources into taking an in-depth look at the job market around us. We then present our findings to the community at our State of St. Louis Workforce event. Each August, we share this report and bring in local leaders to speak to the needs and concerns it uncovers.
