Tools and Resources

The Georgia Workforce and Economic Resilience Center has created many resources, including reports, case studies, videos, and more on workforce and economic development. Topics include experiential learning for high school students and teacher externships, community workforce planning and alignment, economic development resources and more. While some of the resources listed on this page were developed for specific clients, we share them here so that others may benefit and learn from them as well.
