Based on its experience with integrating faith-based and community organizations into Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) and One-Stop Career Centers in New York and other cities, the nonprofit Seedco offers this free guide to help other WIBs and centers create their own partnerships. Community partners have helped with such services as reintegrating ex-offenders, job-readiness training, transportation and child care. This well-designed guide covers planning, benefits and pitfalls, and tools such as flier templates, surveys and self-assessment worksheets. (212) 204-1378,
