Peter has led nonprofits since 1986 including services to people with disabilities, the homeless, and under-represented job seekers. The San Diego Workforce Partnership (SDWP) funds, oversees and delivers a wide variety of workforce programs. SDWP conducts ongoing in-depth labor market research to understand the needs and trends in our economy. With an emphasis on underserved populations and people with barriers to employment, but available to all job seekers, the SDWP and its funded partners services reach 100,000+ job seekers annually. The SDWP directly administers Connect2Careers reaching 15,000+ youth with robust work readiness and jobs/internships. The SDWP has created a broad-based initiative to address the opportunity youth crisis (annual conference – OpportunitySD.org, working groups, research and more). Recipient of the “WIOA Trailblazer” award (550 boards in the U.S.) by the National Association of Workforce Board, the SDWP is a nationally recognized leader in its field.
