St. Pete Works! A Workforce collaboration of community organizations working together to increase employment in the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA). ST. PETE WORKS! is funded by the City of St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Area and led by St. Petersburg College.
St. Pete Works leads the way in connecting job seekers and employers, providing skills training and work opportunities for youth and adults, analyzing and sharing data to educate the public on workforce needs, and aligning community partners around workforce initiatives to help make Southside CRA a place of economic opportunity for all.
Through programs and partnerships with local service providers, St. Pete Works ensures job seekers have access to opportunities and have the skills employers need. We believe individuals and communities prosper when residents have access to gainful employment and businesses have access to a skilled workforce; that way, the people who live or work in our region have the opportunity to thrive.
The collaborative’s s guiding members include Pinellas Re-Entry Coalition (PERC), Human Service, Pinellas Opportunity Council, Pinellas County Urban League, Career Source, United Way Suncoast, and more.
