Priority #1 Mapping Community Agency Employment Programs One of the primary goals of the CCEPP is to map the programs and services of the community agencies. This includes collecting an up-to-date and easily revised staff listing, the target population for each program, and its core strengths. An outcome for this priority will include a website, a asset poster for front line workers and a workshop or information sharing session.

Priority#2 Building Capacity for Career and Employment Sector Priority 2 is to build the capacity of the career and employment sector by creating a healthy work environment for staff and improving recruitment, retention and succession within our not-for-profit agencies. This will also address staff development in the context of personal development and address inequities within the sector by looking at standards.

Priority #3 Create Opportunities for Front-line Staff to Benefit from Network The CCEPP aims to provide professional development and networking opportunities to all staff of the community agencies represented by CCEPP. Community Partner Luncheons are also offered to support staff who aim to inspire and motivate their clients to find success for themselves, their families and their community.

Priority #4 Review Objectives to Create Specific Measurable Outcomes and Evaluate Our Work Plans This priority is aimed at creating work plans and specific timelines while leaving space for relationship building within the collaboration. The proposed Community Research Network may be able to provide evaluation support, and needs to include how programs have affected clients, staff, management, organization.

Priority#5 Strengthen Career and Employment Collaboration to Become a Cohesive Sector with a Unified Voice
