Commonwealth Corporation strengthens the skills of Massachusetts youth and adults by investing in innovative partnerships with industry, education and workforce organizations. We seek to meet the immediate and emerging workforce needs of businesses and workers so they can thrive in our dynamic economy.
Created by the Massachusetts Legislature in 1997, Commonwealth Corporation designs and executes workforce programs in partnership with businesses, educators, and providers across the state. These programs address persistent workforce challenges, such as the skills gap, for targeted industries and populations. In 2011 Commonwealth Corporation created a nonprofit 501(c)(3) to secure private sector support and leverage the knowledge base and best practices garnered through our direct experience.
As part of a broader workforce development community that is dedicated to meeting the needs of job seekers, students of all ages, and businesses in Massachusetts, we work across the Commonwealth with sensitivity to regional economic differences. The context for our work is the knowledge and innovation economy of the Commonwealth – one of the most highly skilled economies in the world. We are committed to ensuring that Massachusetts businesses have access to a pipeline of highly skilled workers and that youth and adults in Massachusetts have pathways to good jobs in the knowledge economy.
