CareerEdge, the workforce development initiative of the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, has received a $125,000 grant from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation to bolster its work in training and "upskilling" the local workforce. This grant extends the decade-long partnership between CareerEdge and Gulf Coast Community Foundation, which was a founding funder of CareerEdge and continues to be an active partner.

Training and certification opportunities for prospective and existing workers play a critical role in developing a robust regional workforce. CareerEdge will use grant funds for on-the-job training, internships and apprenticeship salary subsidies for local employers, Fast Track training, and grants for employers' current workforce.
