Capital Workforce Partners (CWP), the state's workforce development board in north central Connecticut, said it received a $98,000 grant to improve data-sharing platforms that spread awareness about at-risk youths.

CWP said the Travelers Foundation grant will support its Hartford Data Collaborative, which connects 15 organizations to core data software and client sharing services.

The program receives support from the city of Hartford and the Hartford Opportunity Youth Collaborative, which has worked with 40 organizations to build career opportunities for young adults ages 16 to 24.

CWP officials said the grant supports its efforts to re-engage local youths in pursuing their career goals, as more than 4,000 in Hartford are disconnected from education and workforce systems.
