North Hempstead to Host Work Force Development Orientations
North Hempstead, NY - North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Town Council Member Viviana Russell have announced two Work Force Development orientations to be held at the “Yes We Can” Community Center in Westbury on Friday, January 24, 2020 and Tuesday, January 28, 2020. The orientation sessions are intended to give residents a general overview of the topics that will be discussed at a more in-depth work force development class scheduled for February 2020.
“As elected officials, we must always look for unique ways to improve the lives of our residents,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “The Work Force Development program will provide the public with the tools to thrive in their careers including interview techniques and various training. This is an important program which I look forward to continuing for years to come.”
We are proud to be actively participating in the Workforce Development Board along with the Town of Oyster Bay and the City of Glen Cove in giving residents the opportunity to develop and enhance their professional skills. After the orientation sessions, residents can register for workforce development classes that will focus on a number of topics including vocational training, job-search training, and interview preparation and counseling.
“The Town of North Hempstead is proud to have worked hard at addressing the need for Work Force initiatives, both housing and employment opportunities, in our town. The natural progression of those initiatives is to equally ensure our residents have the proper resources to ensure gainful employment, to not only qualify but to sustain those housing opportunities,” said Council Member Russell. “It’s important that we provide enriching resources to those residents who may require additional help in achieving the quality of life we all strive for here on Long Island.”
The Friday, January 24 orientation will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The Tuesday, January 28 orientation will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Both sessions will be held at the ‘Yes We Can’ Community Center at 141 Garden Street, New Cassel.
