Building Our Economy
This collaborative approach is a Win Win Win: businesses get a dynamic workforce; you, the residents, get more jobs in the fastest growing fields; and our community prospers. To ensure all residents have good-paying jobs, we need to equip young people for success in some of Miami-Dade's highest-growth industries – like tech, hospitality, and construction.
So we’re working with the Beacon Council, our chambers, big and small businesses, CareerSource and our colleges and universities to train the talent pool. In the coming year, we’re creating new opportunities for high school students to access apprenticeships in construction on County projects, in collaboration with Miami-Dade County Public Schools and our partners in labor.
