Partner4Work is kicking off the 40,000 for 40,000 program on Thursday, a yearlong campaign for the region’s unemployed and underemployed with jobs.
Partner4Work is the new name of Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board. Based in downtown Pittsburgh, the organization connects funding, expertise and opportunities to develop a world-class workforce system in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.

“On any given day, 40,000 people in our region are unemployed or unemployed,” Stefani Pashman, Partner4Work CEO, said in a statement. “Their struggle to find or keep employment doesn’t just impact them. It has real consequences on families, on communities and on the overall economic health of the region. It’s time to step up and help change the story for the men and women who want a solid career.”
The campaign calls on the region’s business community, community organizations, workforce and economic development agencies, educators and training providers, the philanthropic community, elected officials and policy makers to commit to helping people get to work by any number of ways.
