The Economic Development Council of Western MA (EDC) is committed to deliver resources that will enable companies to thrive in Western MA and improve the quality of life through the creation of quality jobs and increased investment. The EDC is hosting two full-time members in the Springfield Works!, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s Working Cities Challenge (WCC) Initiative as Commonwealth Corps Community Outreach Support Specialists, expanding community outreach and mentor recruitment. Through their service, members are reaching a greater number of residents who are under-employed or unemployed, impacting 220 individuals. In addition, members are leveraging 20 community volunteers and fifteen core partners, all working to remove the disconnect between low-income residents who want sustainable jobs and employers who need a qualified workforce to fill available jobs.
