On June 8, President Obama visited Northern Virginia  Community CoLLege in Alexandria, Virginia, to announce a major expansion of  Skills for America’s Future, an initiative that focuses on training and  developing the skills of America’s workforce through the collaborative efforts  of the nation’s public sector, businesses, community colleges, and labor  force.

“Last year, we launched Skills for America’s Future to  bring together companies and community colleges around a simple idea: Making it  easier for workers to gain new skills will make America more competitive in the  global economy,” President Obama said. “Today we are announcing a number of  partnerships that will help us make this a reality, by opening doors to new jobs  for workers and helping employers find the trained people they need to compete  against companies around the world.”
