Pathways to Work
For over ten years, Nine PBS has partnered with trusted community organizations to understand barriers and solutions to improving outcomes for people in our community. Our Pathways to Work initiative engages trusted partners to understand career pathways for youth in our community and opportunities for midcareer individuals to upskill or reskill in core pathways: manufacturing, construction, healthcare, and IT. The goals of this initiative have been shaped by two of the greatest challenges our workforce partners face: diversifying talent pipelines and bringing awareness to, and dispelling negative perceptions of, high-demand, skilled careers – those jobs that require some training or education beyond a high school diploma, but not a four-year degree.
Future of Work
Future of Work explores monumental changes in the workplace and the long-term impact on workers, employers, educators and communities. Wednesdays, beginning September 1, at 9 pm on Nine PBS and livestream.

Community Resources and Reports
Trusted organizations in our region create reports and resources for employers and job seekers to better understand the workforce landscape.
Nine PBS leverages our Community Engagement Model to understand the complexity of our region’s workforce ecosystem. These partners provide the basis for the goals of our Pathways to Work Initiative through ongoing discussions.
