LaGuardia and Hostos Community Colleges, in partnership with The New York Community Trust, are launching a new initiative to help low-income communities throughout New York — with a focus on Queens and The Bronx — that have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NYC Accelerated Workforce Recovery Hub is a new model for high-quality workforce development at scale. It is funded by a seed grant of $1.65 million from the New York Community Trust, the City’s community foundation. Additional donors and federal grants will contribute to building and expanding the Hub over time. The Hub will provide workforce training for high-demand jobs for at least 400 New Yorkers over an initial 18-month pilot period. By helping the colleges expand support services to connect graduates to jobs and higher education, the initiative is expected to ultimately impact over 3,000 students.
