Good Jobs Hawaʻi is a partnership between Hawaii’s businesses and UHCC to build a local talent pipeline. This collaboration engages employers to identify in-demand jobs along with the skills and education to meet those demands, and a commitment to hire local employees to succeed in those jobs. This is a long-term investment for a healthy workforce in Hawai'i.

Good Jobs Hawai'i focuses on sector partnerships that are industry-led, community-supported collaboratives that strengthen local economies and prepare and connect Hawaii’s young people to careers in in-demand industries.

There are four major sectors involved in Good Jobs Hawai'i: Healthcare, Technology, Clean Energy/Skilled Trades and Creative Services. Learn more about Sector Partnerships.
