STAR² Center Milestones

We are happy to announce that our NCA has been renewed to continue providing workforce resources, activities, and support through the STAR² Center after the close of this project year! With over 70 in-person and web trainings reaching over 2,160 participants in 30 states, we are proud of our first three years and are looking forward to continued partnership and growth with workforce teams across the country.
