Sectoral employment has emerged as an innovative approach to workforce development in which unemployed and underskilled workers are provided with services and training needed to fill positions in sectors with high growth potential. This report examines the sectoral employment initiative sponsored and managed by the New York City (NYC) Department of Small Business Services (SBS) in partnership with the NYC Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO). There are three sector-focused career centers – the Workforce1 Transportation Career Center, the Workforce1 Manufacturing Career Center, and the Workforcee1 Healthcare Career Center. The purpose of the report is to examine the effects of participation in the sector-focused programs on the labor market outcomes of jobseekers after one year.
