Clinton School Impact Minute: Skills to Launch

Cameron Witt, a 2024 graduate of the Clinton School of Public Service, recently partnered with the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub as part of her final Capstone project.

The Innovation Hub is a makerspace dedicated to advancing S.T.E.A.M. education and economic development by providing a variety of workshops and training for both adults and K-12 students.

Witt developed recommendations for the Innovation Hub’s “Skills to Launch” program – which addresses the financial barriers to technical training. Witt’s recommendations will help “Skills to Launch” align with the evolving workforce development needs in Arkansas.

She conducted a needs assessment, analyzed the state’s employment trends and occupational projection data, and identified best practices in workforce development through interviews and a comprehensive review of relevant literature.

The findings from Witt’s needs assessment will inform a detailed report on the current landscape of the industries and occupations in Arkansas relevant to Innovation Hub’s “Skills to Launch” curriculum.
