About the CBO Collective


The Community Based Organization (CBO) Collective represents a new day for workforce-focused organizations in Chicago. Driven by the spirit of inclusivity, 16 founding non-profits have organized for systems change.

Our Action


The CBO Collective exists to provide employers with a central point of access for local talent that face barriers to employment. We formed the CBO Collective to increase employment of Chicago’s South and West Side residents by aligning corporate demand with a collective workforce development approach.
