`Job-centred economic development' integrates approaches from the fields of economic development, employment training, social services and community development. Its strategies focus on connecting disadvantaged adults and youth to family-supporting jobs in their towns, cities and regional economies, and ensuring that these jobs are sustainable, thus providing the basis for long-term careers. This collection of perspectives helps tie those approaches together into a guide for community development and local economic development professionals.
