Just Add One
Community colleges that house workforce and economic development programs and services for businesses play an integral role as a local JAO initiative partner. These programs work directly with business and industry providing training and consultative services to improve and support business growth. The JAO provides an opportunity to add these services to the collaborative mix of the initiative.
Recommended JAO Partnership Contributions:
- Cross referral link to the local JAO website on the college’s website to demonstrate the focus on being market responsive
- Create informational packages to members
- Highlight a participating JAO business in newsletters and website
- Create a section of newsletters and websites about JAO updates and business tools
- Use the JAO partners as a distribution network for the college’s business services offerings
