Talent Initiatives

In the Chattanooga area, a highly motivated, well-trained workforce is critical to continued economic growth, prosperity and enhanced quality of life. We recognize both the challenges and opportunities in today’s workplace, which is why we are committed to improving workforce quality.

Our Talent Development Program brings businesses and services together to address the region’s talent needs. Our program works to ensure our labor force attains the skills and education necessary to meet 21st century employment demands. Programs range from curricular and co-curricular initiatives within schools and partnerships with schools to skills workshops, job fairs, and seminars.

The Chattanooga Chamber offers programs in all 22 Hamilton County Department of Education high schools. We reach 15,000 students every school year and more than 1,000 community volunteers give their time to these programs - representing an economic impact estimated at more than $1 million in volunteer hours.

For more information, please contact Mattie Moran, our Director of Workforce Development and Education, at 423.763.4339 or mmoran@chattanoogachamber.com.
