Chicago, Cook County Create Skills for Chicagoland's Future Jobs Program

Chicago, Cook County Launch Job Training Non-Profit

In an effort to chip away at the area's persistently high unemployment rate, Chicago and Cook County officials this week will formally launch a not-for-profit that will tailor job-training programs to the specific needs of individual corporations with positions to fill.

The program, called Skills for Chicagoland's Future, will try to speed placement of some of the area's 240,000 unemployed residents into local job openings, which number more than 200,000, according to the announcement by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.
