MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Michele Economou Ureste, M.P.A.

The EV Jobs Academy employer-led collaborative (ELC) grant was awarded by the State of Michigan and includes over a half dozen working collaboratives and project teams with over 100 statewide employer and stakeholder partners. In 2023, the second year of the five-year grant, EV Jobs Academy expanded employer engagement and increased participation to nearly 150 partners. SEMCA WIN and the State of Michigan Labor and Economic Opportunity sector strategies were invited to the USDOL Vision 2030 conference as keynote presenters on the structure of the EV Jobs Academy employer-led collaborative which numerous states across the country have since considered duplicating.

In 2023, WIN project managers worked on an unprecedented number of new multi-year state and federal grants that were awarded in 2020, 2021, and 2022. With seasoned professionals from academia and the workforce system, significant progress was made in the complex regional grant strategies which include: 1) the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) Apprenticeship Building America $5.8 million apprenticeship hub development grant, involving six community colleges and six Michigan Works! agency partners, which launched the first Michigan “Mitten Chapter” of the Federation of Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME) program and first FAME training cohort and the Health Careers Alliance for Southeast Michigan developed and obtained USDOL standards approval for the first pre-licensure Registered Nurse apprenticeship program and Surgical Technician registered apprenticeship program; 2) the USDOL H1-B One Workforce on Building an Industry Infinity Supply Chain, one of only three $10 million awards nationally, achieving all second year outcome targets in cybersecurity, transportation, and advanced manufacturing certification training programs delivered through WIN Board member organizations; 3) the State of Michigan Rural Enhanced Access to Careers in Healthcare (MiREACH) grant met nearly all healthcare training and education outcomes largely delivered by GST Michigan Works! in rural areas; 4) the Michigan Learning and Education Advancement Program (MiLEAP) was awarded by the State of Michigan and achieved significant progress in delivering short-term training which leads to industry-recognized credentials and employment; and 5) Oakland Community College awarded SEMCA WIN program management for the U.S. Department of Labor Closing the Skills Gap Apprenticeship grant, and WIN community college and Michigan Works! partners nearly reached all performance outcome metrics with the ultimate goal to serve a total of 3,200 participants by 2025.

Sincerely,

Michele Economou Ureste, M.P.A.
