Workforce & Training Community Forum

Workforce & Training

Community Forum

Dillon, MT

March 7th 2023


Accelerate Montana, the workforce development arm of the University of Montana, will be hosting community forums across the state beginning in February and running through the end of March. These forums are meant to bring awareness to the community to the overall AccelerateMT Workforce development programs as well as our incredible partnerships with training partners and workforce agencies.


The additional goal is to continue the conversation of community needs as it relates to Students, Employers, and Training availability. The plan is to host a 3-hour event with breakout sessions to reach various community groups. Educators, Employers, and then Student, parents, and the General community.


The 3-hour event intends to also feature information booths for partner agencies, such as Job Service, Reach Higher Montana, Career Futures, REO, etc.
