Latino Workforce: A Catalyst for Economic Development


Cleveland: West Side Ecumenical Ministry and El Barrio host a panel discussion about the Latino workforce opportunities that are seen nationally and in the Greater Cleveland region. 


The event will be held on Tuesday, November 28th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Pick Wick & Frolic/Hilarities Theater.  A reception will follow at the House of Blues Cambridge room with the acclaimed live music group - Noel Quintana Latin Crew.  


The panel consists of national and local experts that will provide trends and statistics of Latinos.  The National Council of La Raza, Jobs For the Future (Boston), the City of Cleveland, and Cuyahoga County will be represented with professionals to speak on this growth and potential for corporate U.S.-America and what it can mean for business in Cleveland. 


Jobs for the Future (JFF) believes that all young people should have a quality high school and postsecondary education, and that all adults should have the skills needed to hold jobs that pay enough to support a family. As a non-profit research, consulting, and advocacy organization, JFF works to strengthen our society by creating educational and economic opportunity for those who need it most.


West Side Ecumenical Ministry assists individuals and families meet their needs through programs of service and empowerment carried out in active collaboration with neighborhoods, faith-based organizations, and other service providers.


El Barrio is a Program of the West Side Ecumenical Ministry that seeks to bridge the language, culture, and service gaps that separate Latinos from other people, agencies, and services.  El Barrio has developed a three-step empowerment process to enable our clients to attain self reliance: education and job skills, job placement and retention, and community integration/crisis intervention.


To purchase tickets for the Tuesday, November 28, 2006 panel and reception, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm the cost is $50.  Call 216-651-2037 x. 040.
