Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo (CAPSLO) is a nonprofit agency in California. Their focus is to help people and change lives; they serve nearly 40,000 persons across Central and Southern California. CAPSLO is committed to eliminating poverty by empowering individuals and families to achieve economic self-sufficiency and self-determination through a comprehensive array of community-based programs. CAPSLO had a challenge common to many organizations: all of their staff training took place in the classroom. For CAPSLO that meant that staff who operated in the field had to travel to and from the classrooms. The result was time away from the field, which in turn slowed down staff training. Training itself could also be inconsistent, which, given the nature of their organization, really did not work, and it did not work on a number of levels. CAPSLO was paying the price, both financially and in staff burnout. Changing seasonal staff, frequent staff turnover and strict compliance and verifiability requirements for its various funding resources presented further challenges for the agency.
