Workforce Development and Training

The Center’s workforce development focus began in 2005 as a partnership between our organization and Montana’s Child and Family Services Division to educate welfare workers statewide. Over the years, the Center’s work has expanded to include eLearning, training, and coaching for public health professionals, educators, behavioral health, human service, and healthcare providers in community-based, state, and Tribal agencies across Montana.

For additional information about the services we provide, please contact the Center’s Executive Director, Kate Chapin.
