COLLECTIVE ACTION EXPERIENCE
Collective Action is a method to change our community so that every connected nonprofit is a building block in a person’s unique path out of poverty. By leveraging technology and data, TechBridge can ensure that community members have access to the right help and resources at the right time.

The Colorado Training Provider Outcomes Toolkit
The Colorado Training Provider Outcomes Toolkit shares data between job training program providers and the State of Colorado unemployment insurance and wage data to provide longitudinal wage and employment outcome measures on job training programs. The benefits of this toolkit are that job seekers will be able to make more informed decisions about their education, training providers will be able to respond more quickly to market and employer needs, and employers will have a more skilled talent pool from which to hire.
Data is essential to the work of collective action, yet even the most impactful nonprofits struggle to create timely, actionable data to achieve results to scale. From L4L’s initial experience working with the 3rd grade reading and post-secondary bright spot organizations, they found that some nonprofits were easily able to send L4L reports and data for the network meetings. One of the intents of the L4L network is to help bright spot organizations scale their operations. TechBridge, with a proven record of undergirding a nonprofits efficiency through the use of enhanced technology, is assessing each bright spot organization’s current data and technology state and developing a roadmap to help the organizations achieve a future state where they are able to utilize their own data, share their data with L4L, and scale their operations.
Westside Works is focused on helping Atlanta Westside residents obtain job skills training and employment. Integrity CDC is the managing partner for Westside Works and they are responsible for the recruitment and assessment of participants. Participants are then referred to the job training programs offered by Westside Works; such as, culinary, child development associate, construction, and information technology. TechBridge helped the Westside Works partners to improve the client journey experience from case management, to job training programs, to employment, to financial success.
Westside Connect partners are committed to improving the health and well-being of individuals and families by providing wraparound services to residents in need. Westside Connect was developed to allow a variety of agencies to identify essential needs and ensure individuals and families are linked to vital resources. Westside Connect embraces the concept of “no wrong door” where residents will get the help they need regardless of which organization they turn to for help first. TechBridge designed an integrated data solution that streamlines how agencies work together to ensure residents are linked to direct support and provision of essential services. This allows Westside Connect to engage additional partners and funders in supporting multi-agency collaboration, identify and address gaps in community service, and achieve a more effective system for person-centered care coordination.
